The IBM NetVista was a variety of products manufactured by IBM.

Software suite[edit]

The Software Suite was introduced in April 1996 as a client–server software suite, with the server software running on OS/2, and the client software on Windows 3.1 and Windows 95. Meant to provide Internet access to K-12 users, it included such things as a web browser, nanny software and other internet utilities, including a TCP/IP stack.

Starting with version 1.1, the server side was also supported on Windows NT. The software suite was withdrawn without replacement in January 2000.
