After quite some time of hard work, we’re ready to welcome ourselves to the world of Mac shareware! It’s a good feeling to see how everything is finally coming together. With all the website stuff up and running, we can now concentrate fully on what we think we’re best at: Writing good Mac software and being yet another shareware company without the “yet another”…
Our first product is called Lighthouse
. It’s a dynamic port forwarding
utility that supports both the NAT/PMP
protocols (which, translated from nerd-talk, means that it’ll work with your Apple Aiport base station, but also many D-Link, Linksys or Netgear routers from the PC world). And it’s really useful if you want to run server-like applications on your computer behind the NAT router, such as some instant messengers (they act as servers for file-transfers), networked tools like SubEthaEdit
, file-sharing programs like Transmission
or plain simple servers like a web or ftp server. After all the time we spent with it during our internal beta testing, we already find Lighthouse
totally indispensable. Oh, and it has a pretty icon!
Give it a test-run: It’s free to evaluate Lighthouse
for 14 days. After that, it’s all yours for the small fee of $9.99 (which is less than 5 candy bars and less than 3 packs of cigarettes, depending on which comparison you prefer).
