May 08, 2001, 01:00 ET from Lineo, Inc.

    LAS VEGAS, Networld+Interop, May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Lineo(TM), Inc., a
 leading innovator in embedded systems, real-time and high availability
 solutions, today announced it will begin integrating third party software
 solutions into the Lineo SecureEdge(TM) appliance development platform.  Lineo
 currently provides several SecureEdge OEM Internet devices including VPN
 Internet routers, firewalls and network attached storage.  By opening up the
 platform to third parties, Lineo can now offer best-of-breed software
 solutions to OEMs that desire additional functionality.
     The first of these additional software options available on the SecureEdge
 platform includes InterNetShare's All Aboard! Advanced Edge Router (AER)
 software.  InterNetShare, an Internet connectivity provider, will provide
 Lineo customers with the first VPN software solution to incorporate a built-in
 IPv4 to IPv6 transition environment, coupled with encryption, secure VPN and
 multimedia services.  Once installed, users do not have to worry about
 transitioning network devices to IPv6.  AER automatically configures new
 devices for IPv6 to preserve a customer's initial investment in IPv4 devices
 and add new devices with no interoperability issues.  The user sees
 transparent connectivity, no matter where the resource is on the Internet or a
 VPN.
     "InterNetShare exemplifies the power and flexibility of the SecureEdge
 platform," said Miles Gillham, senior product marketing manager, Lineo, Inc.
 "It is not just a Lineo solution -- we are partnering with a number of third
 parties so we can offer our OEM customers the richest selection of integrated
 software tools and facilities.  We have add-ons in areas of VPN, content
 filtering, caching, etc., and have a very exciting partnership program for
 third parties like InterNetShare.  We are also committed to only partnering
 with the best-of-breed suppliers in each niche such as InterNetShare."
     "The flexibility of the Lineo SecureEdge router platform for broadband and
 narrowband interfaces combined with the adaptability and transparent
 connectivity of the InterNetShare AER software will allow OEM developers to
 quickly configure a SecureEdge VPN Router for a number of applications," said
 David Preston, InterNetShare vice president & general manager.
