Thank you for all the heart felt comments. While Yazsoft is no more, I am currently looking to turn the page and possibly carry on a new path. I am on the lookout for someone serious and capable to help build the next major versions of some apps I have in mind including existing ones. I still use almost all of them daily btw. While no longer supported, they still work. I would like to ensure they live on and grow but I need some help. Please only serious people contact me. Thank you all for your support. Johnny.

Very sad to see ShareTool go! I have used for many years and invaluable. Any news when the free version will be up and running?

Will check out Slink now, to see if it can do the same as ShareTool in the meantime.

Yazsoft has shutdown :(.
They have transferred the codebase of ShareTool to Bains Software which will shortly re-release it as a free application.

It is still working for me but I dare not sign out or change anything with my settings for fear that it will stop.

Sad to see Yazsoft go, but glad they found a home for this one. Wish they did for the other ones they made.

FYI if you are trying to download this, try archive.org.

Thanks for the archive.org tip; I hadn't yet updated from 2.4.1 so I was seeking a 2.4.2 download. Unfortunately, the only version I could find via the Wayback Machine's archives of Yazsoft's site is 2.4. However, I did eventually find 2.4.2 archived at Softpedia, so other users seeking the last version should check there.

This product is useless...and "technical support" does not exist. This worked for about 5 to 7 days and then just quit. The FAQ's technical support they offer does not address my issue correctly. I know what I'm doing when it comes to most PC's, MAC's and even networking...but this product really is trash. Stay away from it. It's useless.

If you are thinking of buying this, now is probably not a good time. Their authentication servers seem to have been down since around the 6th of May, and although we have posted on their forum http://yazsoft.com/f/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2265 there has been no response from the company as to what is wrong, and when we could expect it to be fixed.
Without anything official I can only speculate that they've run out of money.

The ShareTool servers are back up and running. The cause was a simple oversight that's been addressed. This shouldn't happen again in the future. Sorry for the inconvenience. Business as usual.

This is a serious issue. Six days of no service & not having the systems in place to address a "simple oversight" = zero confidence

Don't leave home without this one. This is the most powerful bonjour services app I've used. I'm just hoping they do something for an iPad in the future.

Question - Is this TWO licenses for $12.50?
I see that on kagi.com, it is stated that:

ShareTool 2: 2 Licenses (20% OFF) $25.00
IMPORTANT: New ShareTool users should purchase the "2 Licenses" package. A minimum of two licenses is required for use.

SO - I would like to KNOW that this is the same deal - meaning it has the TWO licenses needed to run it.
Thanks,
Stuart

Yes. The MU Promo gives you two licenses.

I couldn't get ShareTool to work in neither a Lion nor a Snow Leopard boot partition on my MBP. I emailed the dev with screen shots of my settings and was told I was good to go. There's probably a settings issue with my router, but the dev never got back to me to trouble shoot. The 6 day trial is ridiculously short if there's no response for tech support. I'll find another way.

Rating ShareTool 1/2 a star in your situation is unwarranted and baseless. There are thousands of users using ShareTool successfully on a daily basis. Whatever it is that is not working for you is unique to your setup and is unlikely to be a bug or shortcoming in ShareTool. Further, I answer ALL my emails so there is no way I didn't respond to you if I actually received your message. Regardless, I'll be happy to take a look if you can provide me with useful info. Thank you. Johnny.

Sorry, Johnny, you didn't reply to my email, or I would be up and running with ShareTool and I wouldn't be writing this. I take these reviews seriously, because it's too easy to fake them. Users should know when there's a problem with a product or the support for the product.

There is no problem with the product or the support for the product. If your network is setup in a way that doesn't make it possible for ShareTool (or any other similar apps) to function properly, then unfortunately, there isn't much we can do. Like with any app, there are certain requirements that need to be met. ShareTool cannot function on networks restricted by firewalls or improperly configured routers. If that's the case, then someone in the know should be assisting in troubleshooting and tweaking of your network setup. I can assist only so much unfortunately. I am not physically there with you. And again, I respond to all messages I receive.

"There is no problem with the product or the support for the product. "

Interesting response. I was considering purchasing this package until I saw that response, from whom I assume is the seller. I deal with enough unpleasantness enough from people that I must deal with, not willing to add another one. This seems to be a theme with too many individuals selling their personal software products - remember, a soft voice and kind word can overcome a whole host of deficiencies.

I can access my iTunes library anywhere around the world! Screenshare my Mac Mini and iMac from work. Transfer files I forgot at home. Help out my wife without wondering what she's looking at the screen... priceless!

Thanks Yazsoft!
