Question and Answers

Do people need Internet access to get to my site?

Absolutely not. The WIN Server has extensive dial-up support. Wildcat! has a built-in terminal server and a GUI server. For text based connectivity, all a user needs is a telecommunications program such as Hyperterm, Procomm, Qmodem or any DOS based modem dial-up program. For GUI dial up services, the user can use the freely distributed Wildcat! Navigator Of course, if you’re system is linked to the Internet, your callers can surf Web too!

Do I need to have an Internet connection?

No. With the WIN Server’s dial-up support you can still provide a Web-like online experience for your customers via the freely distributable Wildcat! Navigator software. All you need is a phone line and a modem and you’ve got your own online service.

I already have a web server. Can the Wildcat! Interactive Net Server run with my existing software?

Of course! If you’re looking to add interactivity and a sense of community to your existing Web site, then adding the WIN Server is your obvious choice.
