I believe that "OS/2 LAN Server" was part of "OS/2 1.3 Extended Edition".
Extended Edition also included
some kind of SNA gateway, iirc, and probably other things I have zero
recollection of.  The product had a
notion of "domains" at this point, although I don't know if this was a new
feature introduced with the OS/2
version or if previous products already had it.
