Printing now happens in many places and increasingly is done in-house on a network. That trend, coupled with the impact of the Web on the distribution of information, has taken a toll on Doc's buddies in the commercial printing industry. That's why an article by my friend and excellent writer Cary Sherburne at the Web site What They Think really caught my eye. It's an interview with the Executive VP of Mergers and Acquisitions, Jim Cohen, at Consolidated Graphics (CGX), one of the largest commercial printers in the country.

Creating a VPN connection

Virtual private network (VPN) connections enable a computer to create a secure, tunneled connection to a remote host. Often, VPN is used to create a connection across the Internet to a private LAN. Computers that establish a VPN connection to a remote LAN can function on the LAN as if they were connected locally to the network. Therefore, a VPN connection enables the computer to access shared resources such as folders and printers and access other servers on the remote network.

Novell upgrades technology at BrainShare

Networking-software maker Novell said this week that it would release a public test version of the next upgrade to its directory-services technology, eDirectory. The new version, eDirectory 8.7, will be available April 15. Key features of the upgrade, announced at Novell's annual BrainShare user conference, include new Web-based administration of the system, and expanded support for Web technologies Extensible Markup Language (XML) and Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP). After eDirectory 8.7 ships, Novell will release an add-on set of services supporting the Universal Description, Discovery and Integration protocol (UDDI). All these protocols are expected to play a key role in emerging Web services. Directories are databases of computer users, their systems and any other network-attached devices, such as printers. They've become more important as internal networks and the Internet have become more complex. Separately, Novell announced an expansion of an alliance with Web software provider BEA Systems that involves an integration of technologies. Novell consulting subsidiary Cambridge Technology Partners has reaped $120 million in revenue from BEA-related services over the past two years, Novell said. --Ben Heskett, Special to ZDNet News
