Earlier versions of [[AppleShare]] supported only the AppleTalk network transport protocol but later versions, sold under the name AppleShare IP, allowed use of the TCP/IP protocol stack, as used on most modern networks. [[AppleShare]] provided three different protocols for application-layer services: AppleShare File Server, AppleShare Print Server and AppleShare PC.

AppleShare IP 5.0 offers high performance, which results from two of its features. First, support for TCP/IP improves file transfer speed. Second, the file and directory cache is dynamic, which means that each service can obtain the memory it needs to deliver optimum performance. Setup and administration are simplified because all services share the AppleShare Registry, a database of users and groups. For example, the access privileges you set up for the File Server are also used for the Web Server.

The AppleShare Registry API, which is included with AppleShare IP 5.0, provides a shared users and groups database for all servers (except the AppleShare IP Print Server) residing on the same machine. Using the AppleShare Registry API, developers can more quickly add new servers. For example, to add a calendar scheduling server to AppleShare IP 5.0, a developer would use the AppleShare Registry API to enumerate the list of users and groups from which a user could select to schedule a meeting. Similarly, to modify the Mail Server to allow a maximum number of e-mail messages per user, a developer could use the API to enumerate a list of users, and then simply add a new attribute to each user for setting this value. The AppleShare Admin API also enables developers to add administration controls for new features and services to the AppleShare IP Users & Groups window.

AppleShare IP 6.0 supports AppleShare File Sharing on TCP/IP as well as AppleTalk. To optimize performance, AppleShare automatically connects any client with a valid IP address via TCP/IP. If the TCP/IP connection is implemented using high-speed media such as Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) or 100BASE-T Ethernet, AppleShare IP 6.0 takes advantage of the medium, performing file transfers at the maximum speed. Support for TCP/IP means that AppleShare IP 6.0 supports geographically distributed workgroups. For example, a user in the United States can access a server in France through the Internet, as if it were on a LAN. Any server that is available over AppleTalk, or over both TCP/IP and AppleTalk, appears in the Chooser. To select a server available via TCP/IP only, the user can type in its domain name or IP address. To make it easier for a colleague to access a particular file server, a user can create an alias for the server and deliver it via disk or e-mail. The alias contains both AppleTalk path information and the IP address of the server, so it works from any Macintosh client with network access, regardless of protocol or location.

By combining a suite of powerful services in one package, AppleShare IP 6.0 makes it easier for companies, educational organizations, and workgroups to communicate and collaborate. The services — file sharing, e-mail, web, and print — each powerful in its own right — can be used singly or in any combination. Regardless, administration is simple because all services share the same users and groups database, and privileges set up for one service apply to the others as well.Use of Internet-standard protocols and services, such as TCP/IP, LPR printing, POP,and IMAPv4, enables organizations with mixed clients to communicate and collaborate more effectively. For example, Mac OS, Windows, and UNIX users can share files easily, and Windows and UNIX clients can print to Apple printers — even over the Internet. Finally, AppleShare IP 6.0 offers its power and flexibility with no compromise in ease of use. All services share a single, intuitive interface. The administrator simply checks boxes to enable and disable services. Easy to install, use, and administer, AppleShare IP6.0 satisfies workgroup requirements for versatility with minimal overhead for training and administration.

===New features in AppleShare IP 6.0===
 +
Organizations with earlier versions of [[AppleShare]] can take advantage of these new features by upgrading:
 +
* Eight integrated, full-featured network services for workgroups: AFP (over [[AppleTalk]] and TCP/IP), FTP, SMB, HTTP, POP/SMTP, IMAP, LPR, PAP
 +
* Scalability: AppleShare IP 6.0 supports up to 500 simultaneous users and 10,000 users in the database
 +
* Outstanding performance, including higher data throughput when accessing files through TCP/IP
 +
* A suite of APIs for all network services, which gives access to users, groups, and service features
 +
* Support for Windows File Sharing via SMB, enabling Windows 98, [[Windows 95]], and Windows NT clients to share files
 +
* Robust support for IMAPv4
 +
* Resolution of aliases over FTP and HTTP
 +
* Ability to restrict access to print queues by username or group membership
 +
* Separate guest access assignment for each service
 +
* Printing over TCP/IP

===AppleShare IP 6.3.3===
 
Faster. Scalable. More secure. Greater accessibility. If you need a powerful yet simple way to communicate and exchange information, you’ll find AppleShare IP 6.3.3 software an invaluable tool. Install any combination of its integrated file, print, mail, and web servers as needed. Basic setup takes only minutes, and ongoing server management is simple with shared users and groups and its fast remote-administration interface. The services of AppleShare IP 6.3.3 work over TCP/IP and [[AppleTalk]] networks, and its native SMB support for Windows clients means it looks just like a Windows NT file server in the Network Neighborhood of Windows users.
