Suitcase Server

Suitcase Server provides the ability to share fonts with automatic synchronisation that enables workgroups to access the same sets of fonts and to control which fonts are downloaded or subscribed to.

New Feature in version X1:

  • A series of permissions that administrators can set on an individual-user basis to control specific client features including the ability to remove non-approved fonts and save the results of searches and the authority to override system fonts on local machines.

Features include:

  • Five Suitcase Clients: includes five Suitcase clients. Suitcase Server is compatible with Mac OS X Server; each Suitcase Client is also Mac OS X compatible. The Suitcase client can access Suitcase Server through the local network or across the Internet
  • Cross-Platform Compatibility: synchronise fonts for Macintosh and Windows users including Mac OS X. It uses 10 MB of RAM and can be installed in five minutes. Administering fonts requires a Macintosh to run the Mac-only server administration application
  • Control Font Downloads: view the font sets available on the Suitcase Server and subscribe to the fonts that are needed to reduce network traffic and free hard disk space on local computers
  • Job Font Folders: create Suitcase Server font sets based on the folders that contain fonts and files. Fonts are stored in Job folders making it easier to find and distribute fonts in logical pre-defined folders
