5.8 Free Tape Redirection?

Postby DUOK » Thu Dec 08, 2011 9:38 pm

Hello,

I see that on v5.8 beta free edition, the tape redirection is blocked.
In the link below forum Anatoly Vilchisnky wrote that this function will be free.
Is this correct?

Thanks in advance.

Yes it's correct. With V5.8 and up tape redirector feature is going to be included free of charge.

I just installed 5.8 free and Tape Redirection seems to be a paid option? Was this changed or is there some other issue?

We'll have software updated and Tape Redirector as a separate product released this week.

Just a 'me too' post - I could really use this Tape Redirector feature. would appreciate a license for the beta, and perhaps a followup on the release version?

Just a quick update - we will release it a little bit later due to licensing mechanism modification.
