Quick How-To Guide

WinTarget AoE Server is an advanced, powerful and full-featured AoE Target software that makes any x86, x64 Windows machine into an AoE Target.
WinTarget for AoE Server is an SAN solution that allows you, under the environment of Ethernet network, quickly to export existing storages such as disk images, physical disks, partitions, or any disk files burner to its client machines. WinTarget can support to use a remote AoE device to boot computers or installed OS by gPXE or PXE.

A small mention besides giving a direct link to a TRIAL software (otherwise Commercial) would have been highly appreciated.
http://www.wintarget.net/purchase.html

It is not clear to me if what is offered is a TRIAL (time limited) or a FREE version (with limited capabilities), as it is NOT the SAME thing:
http://www.wintarget.net/download.html

WinTarget Download Center

Download free trial of all WinTarget products here! BUY NOW COMPLETELY RISK FREE! All products are distributed as Shareware. This means that you can download and try it for free. If you find it useful and decide to keep it over the evaluation period, you should pay the registration fee.


If the second, you might well be considered a SPAMmer :ph34r:

As a side note, a review of the English text might be of use :whistling:, beside the evident (highlighted) typo that could actually provoke some good laughter :unsure:, the italicized sentence does not "sound" English:

The NEW Software is really not free, the free version not accept more than 1 concurrent connection.

Impossible to use as a free solution.

BTW, is a good news.

And again,
  • if it is a freeware (but SEVERELY limited, and in practice useless) it is more like a DEMO.
  • if it is a TRIAL it may be time limited (or - say - boot only 10 times) but allow to TRY the features (I mean, it is well possible that at - say - three concurrent connection the thingy crashes and you have 150 bucks for something that is not working)
In any case it seems like confirmed that the OP is SPAM, possibly about a nice product :unsure:, but still SPAM :(.

No. Using an AoE disk is like having the hard disk outside the computer; somewhere else in another computer, accessed using the Ethernet network.

AoE is only for boot from image. To install WinXP to or from network use iSCSI.
