AmigaKit Secures AMITCP 4 Distribution Agreement

September 2nd 2013

AmigaKit, long-standing Amiga computer retailer and developer of the EasyNet software has secured a distribution agreement for AMITCP 4 with the developers, NSDi.

The deal will result in AMITCP 4 being available once again for commercial sale integrated into the forthcoming EasyNet Professional Edition package.

 EasyNet is a modern Internet networking package for Classic Amiga computers, which also provides a feature-rich front end for AMITCP.

Existing users of the standard EasyNet will be eligible for a future upgrade package to the Professional Edition.

Managing Director of AmigaKit, Matthew Leaman, commented: “We are pleased to once again support the Amiga and bring new software developments to market.  EasyNet will continue to be upgraded over the next few months and beyond, re-affirming our commitment to our customers and product.  The inclusion of AMITCP 4 into this package will strengthen the application and give users more functionality.”

Tomi Ollila of NSDi commented: “We, the creators of AmiTCP/IP are pleased to see there is nice market for the Amiga machine and operating system that has taught us so much during it's existence and we hope this agreement with AmigaKit makes it even better.”

Outstanding news! Congratz once more Matthew!

Despite being settled for years with MiamiDX and recently with Neil's WPA2 prism2 driver for my A600, I just grabbed an EasyNet CD just for the support.
Thanks for helping us keep the Amiga alive :)

How does AmiTCP 4 compare to the latest Roadshow, in features and performance?
MorphOS is Amiga done right! :)

It's the best stack out there IMO. That includes all other 68k stacks, AROS and MorphOS.

That's v3. v4 is commercial.

What does it offer over any of the stacks derived from v3 or over Roadshow?

I'm in. I spent quite some effort trying to buy a copy of AmiTCP 4.x back in the day. You'll have my support for sure. I also purchased the Roadshow download!

Choice? I really don't know enough of the technical workings to be able to tell you. If Genesis or another GUI is part of the deal, that would be a big advantage.

I also don't know as I haven't tried Roadshow yet, but in a thread over EAB Jens replied the following:

I also thought that Roadshow is faster, but AmiTCP kicks Roadshow's ass if you tweak cache sizes the same way.
