iTools (OS X) for Mac

Download.com Staff Jul 1, 2014

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For outdated computers only: You cannot safely run the app past Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server edition.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.

Developer's Description

iTools is a family of tools essential for serious commercial content delivery and eCommerce. iTools for Mac OS X extends and enhances OS X's built-in networking with ease-of-use and increased functionality. This suite of Internet tools is derived from Tenon's award-winning WebTen software and is based on standard open-source protocol implementations designed to complement and extend Apple's included Apache and to make it easy for Webmasters to set up and support sophisticated network servers with a point-and-click Web browser administration.

iTools 7 is a different breed of Internet server suite. iTools 7 combines the rock-solid reliability of Apache 2 with the ease of use of Macintosh. This version of iTools 7 is as innovative as the computers that run it. And whether you're a Mac user who's upgrading, a Windows user who's looking at switching to the Mac, or a UNIX user who loves the idea of using server software like Apache on top of a state-of-the art BSD UNIX implementation, this is the server suite for you.
