The Shareware version is functional for 30 days. It includes all functionality of the corporate product except for the ability to maintain connections from within Starcomms and the Intelligent Assistant.
The Intelligent Assistant is relevant for larger users. What it does is to use a historical analysis file derived from the transfer log. It looks at the history of each transfer profile and makes recommendations as to which connections appear to be performing poorly compared with their history and similar peers. It also recommends changes to make to schedule transfer times to improve performance and can also suggest the best time to slot new transfers into the schedule for maximum performance.
