The Professional Communications Program!

Beagle Bros' Point-to-Point includes these major features:

  • Point-to-Point has received many prestigious honors from critics and users alike. InCider magazine voted Point-to-Point the "All Time Best Telecommunications Program" in 1988. In 1987 Point-to-Point earned the "People's Choice Award" from InCider magazine and the "Software Excellence Award" from Nibble magazine.
  • Point-to-Point comes with everything you need to take full advantage of your modem's built-in power. No other software is required.
  • Point-to-Point works with most communications hardware: Hayes Smartmodem-compatible modems, the Hayes Micromodem and the Novation Apple-Cat II. Virtually all Apple II modem interface cards are supported, as well as the IIe, IIc+ and IIgs built-in serial ports.

  • Point-to-Point's internal review buffer can hold up to 5 megabytes of captured text. RamWorks-style memory cards and IIgs memory are automatically supported.
