Editors' review

iTools (OS X) for Mac enhances PowerPC-based Macs with Apache Web servers, OpenSSL libraries, and a Perl interpreter, and also adds support for the webDAV and FTP protocols. One thing to note is that this freeware is written exclusively for PowerPCs and not Intel computers, meaning it will not run on modern hardware without some sort of an emulator like Rosetta.

Pros

Straightforward setup: Following an installation wizard that requires both an administrative password and a restart, iTools (OS X) for Mac asks you to provide a remote server URL, a username, and a password.

Easy log-in: The app integrates with OS X's keychain for saving log-in information, which eases the log-in process.

Solid features: You get remote server settings, mail configuration, FTP, certificate management, and all the other essential features you'd expect from an app of this kind, all of them packed in an accessible interface.

Cons

For outdated computers only: You cannot safely run the app past Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server edition. Also keep in mind that with each new release of its Server editions, Apple has improved its feature set, making this freeware even more obsolete.

Bottom Line

iTools (OS X) for Mac will only appeal to people who have an obsolete Mac. In our tests we determined that the newest Macs that are able to successfully run the software are Intel-based with the Rosetta emulation software installed. Therefore, you cannot safely run the app passed Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server edition.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of iTools (OS X) for Mac 7.1.
