    NEW YORK, PC Expo, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- GraphOn Corporation today
 announced that their latest thin client/server product, GO-Between, is
 scheduled for general availability concurrently with the release of Microsoft
 Windows NT Server 4.0 operating system, Terminal Server Edition.  Designed as
 an add-on for Terminal Server (formerly code named Hydra), GO-Between is now
 available for evaluation by request from GraphOn.  GO-Between is the third
 offering in GraphOn's family of thin client/server products that provide fast
 access to UNIX/X applications from any desktop device.  GO-Between installs on
 Terminal Server, taking advantage of the features and benefits of multi-user
 Windows NT, to allow any Terminal Server user access to UNIX/X applications,
 with no extra software needed on the user desktop.  A Corporation can better
 manage its transition strategy to the new world of multi-user Windows NT while
 allowing access to legacy business critical UNIX/X applications.
     GraphOn's family of thin client/server products help lower the total cost
 of ownership (TCO) of network installations by allowing efficient access to
 UNIX/X applications by diverse operating systems.  GraphOn's thin client add-
 on products utilizing GraphOn's highly efficient RapidX protocol and thin
 client architecture provides easy remote access to UNIX/X applications by to a
 variety of desktops and PDAs, including all versions of Microsoft Windows,
 Windows-based terminals, and Java-based Internet browsers.
     GO-Between Benefits
     * Instant access to UNIX/X applications from any desktop device connected
       to Terminal Server.
     * No software required on desktop.
     * Thin client (under 300kb) add-on for Terminal Server, reduces system
       overhead and increases scalability.
     * Low-bandwidth RapidX protocol, reduces network load, enables modem and
       Internet connections.
     * Helps reduce TCO through simple centralized installation, deployment and
     According to GraphOn President, Walt Keller, the benefits of using GO-
 Between to deliver UNIX/X applications are significant. "MIS managers are
 reluctant to rewrite their legacy UNIX applications.  GO-Between allows them
 to smoothly integrate Microsoft's latest technology with the existing base of
 UNIX and X applications, without taking the risk and expense of changing
 everything at once."
     John Frederiksen, group product manager at Microsoft Corp. said, "We are
 pleased GraphOn has released GO-Between for Terminal Server.  A corporation
 can plan and stage their implementation of Terminal Server secure in the
 knowledge that users will continue to be able to use existing UNIX
 applications simply and efficiently, while gaining the benefits of the
 thousands of rich Windows-based applications available off the shelf today."
     GO-Between installs a Universal X Server on the UNIX host and a sub-300kb
 thin client add-on to Terminal Server.  PCs and Windows-based terminals users
 can access their UNIX/X applications through Terminal Server as though they
 were resident on their desktops.  With GO-Between, no code needs to be
 installed in the desktop devices, while the UNIX application operates in its
 optimum native mode on the UNIX host.  Processing and communications load on
 the Terminal Server is minimized, and scalability enhanced, due to the very
 thin GO-Between client, and GraphOn's highly efficient, thin wire RapidX
     GraphOn will be demonstrating GO-Between at PC Expo in New York at Javits
 Convention Center, Microsoft Partner Pavilion 2646 from June 16 through June
