Current Version: 1.0c5 (June 2, 2005)

IPNetShareX (formerly gNAT) is another useful piece of software from Sustainable Softworks, the folks who brought you IPNetMonitor, Tuner, Router and Sentry. From the gNAT home page: "gNAT is a small program designed to give users graphical access to Mac OS X's Network Address Translation (NAT) services without having to use the command line. NAT is a protocol used to share a single internet connection among multiple computers without requiring a dedicated hardware router. gNAT can be used as a Mac OS X alternative to the basic Internet sharing feature of IPNetRouter." Version 1.0c5 adds/changes the following:

  • Fix load_install script to work properly on Tiger.

Use IPNetShareX Pro if you are a commercial organization and/or you may need technical support with this software. Use IPNetShareX if you will be using IPNetShareX in a non-commercial installation AND you will not require technical suppport. IPNetShareX Pro registration is $25.00 and can be immediately ordered online. IPNetShareX registration keys can be obtained at no charge as described in the included documentation. In both cases, you will need a registration key in order to continue running the software after the initial 21 day trial period. You just need to copy and paste the entire XML key file into the registration edit box and click the Accept button.
