RhinoCom - OS/2 Modem Communications
RhinoCom is a modem communication package designed specifically for the OS/2 platform and market. It is incredibly multithreaded, was designed to fit snugly within a multitasking environment, is object-oriented both in design and in its Workplace Shell dialing directory, uses the OS/2 batch language, REXX, for scripting, allows processing to take place in response to events, has fully context-sensitive help, and is already well known for its power and reliability. These features and more allow RhinoCom to fully take advantage of the increased productivity that OS/2 has to offer its users. New features of v2.0 include: fax receive, caller ID, and Telnet Client/Server.

"...not only a finely crafted communications program, but a true OS/2 application that is completely integrated with OS/2 Warp's system capabilities." .....................................OS/2 Magazine, Volume 2 Number 8 August 1995

"...a great example of the trend (finally) toward making OS/2 applications look and feel like they were made for OS/2." .....................................InfoWorld, Volume 17 Issue 10 March 6, 1995

"...well-designed software that offers powerful, reliable communications -- a program that lives up to its mighty name." .....................................Home Office Computing, Volume 13 Number 7 July 1995
