SciLink used a FirstClass® server, version 5.5, running on a G-3 accellerated Macintosh computer.


A FirstClass® Server is best accessed using a FirstClass® Client with the appropriate Settings files, but can also be navigated using a Web browser such as Netscape® or Explorer®.


FirstClass® creates a password-protected environment which is intuitive, easy to use, and facilitates communication among groups. It features asynchronous computer conferencing as well as real-time CHAT.
