                               CONSENT OF LANDLORD

the Second Amendment to Lease dated as of February 13, 1998 (collectively

corporation ("Tenant") relating to Premises commonly known as 50 West San

Santa Clara (the "Premises"), Tenant has requested that Landlord consent to
Tenant's Sublease to Halcyon Software California Inc., a California corporation
("Subtenant") of the said suites 1010 and 1015, which will hereafter be
known jointly as Suite 1012 (the "Subleased Premises") on the terms and
conditions set forth in the Sublease dated for reference purposes as of March
31, 1998 and attached to this Consent as Exhibit 'A" (the "Sublease").

     In consideration of Tenant's and Subtenant's execution of this Consent of
Landlord and agreement to the terms and conditions set forth in this Consent,
Landlord consents to the Sublease on the following terms and conditions:

contains a complete and accurate statement of all rent and other consideration
received or to be received from Subtenant in regard to the Sublease.

     2. NO WAIVER: This Consent does not constitute consent to any subsequent
subletting or assignment, nor a waiver of the restriction on assignment and
subletting contained in the Lease. Any substantial modifications in the terms of
the Sublease, including but not limited to any change in the rent or other
payments made by the Subtenant or any change in the term of the Sublease,
constitutes a new sublease which requires Landlord's written consent. This
Consent shall not be deemed to be approval of any such modified Sublease.

to create contractual obligations on the part of Landlord to the Subtenant. By
executing this Consent, Subtenant agrees to assume all obligations of Tenant
under the Lease related to the Subleased Premises arising after the date hereof
and during the term of the Sublease and to remain jointly and severally liable
therefore with Tenant.

     4. COSTS AND ATTORNEY'S FEES: This consent is conditional upon Landlord's
receipt of the Landlord's reasonable costs and attorney's fees, to which

Sublease be, or be construed as, a modification of the terms of the Lease, and
in the event of any inconsistency between any term of the Sublease and the terms
of the Lease, the terms of the Lease shall prevail. To the extent that the
Sublease contains any terms or provisions which purport to bind Landlord, such
terms shall be of no force or effect.

     6. HAZARDOUS MATERIALS: (a) Subtenant, at its sole cost, shall comply with
all laws relating to the storage, use, and disposal of Hazardous Materials (as
defined in the Lease) that Subtenant, its agents, employees, contractors, or
invitees bring or permit to be brought on to the Subleased Premises or on the
Premises or the Property. If Subtenant does store, use, or dispose of any
Hazardous Materials, Subtenant shall notify Landlord in writing at least five
(5) days prior to their first appearance on the Subleased Premises, and unless
disclosed prior to the execution of this Consent in a response provided by
Subtenant to Landlord's Hazardous Materials Questionnaire or other written
disclosure, such Hazardous Materials shall not be stored, used, or disposed of
on the Subleased or Premises without Landlords advance written approval.
Subtenant shall be subject to all obligations of Tenant under the Lease relating
to Hazardous Materials.

     (b) Subtenant shall be responsible for and shall defend, indemnify, and
hold Landlord and its agents harmless from and against all claims, costs and
liabilities, including attorney's fees and costs, arising out of or in
connection with the storage, use, or disposal of Hazardous Materials in or about
the Subleased Premises, the Premises, or the Property by Subtenant, its agents,
employees, contractors, or invitees which occur prior to or after the Effective
Date, but Tenant shall remain responsible for any such matters to the extent set
forth in the Lease, and Subtenant's responsibility and duty as set forth above
shall not relieve Tenant of its responsibilities and duties pursuant to the
Lease.

     7. CONSTRUCTION AND SIGNAGE: Any and all construction to be performed by
Tenant or Subtenant on the Subleased Premises shall be subject to the advance
written approval of Landlord and all other provisions relating to construction
which are set forth in the Lease. Any signage called for in the Sublease shall
be subject to Landlord's approval as per the terms of the Lease, and subject to
the procurement of approval and permits from the City of San Jose if required.
By approving the Sublease, Landlord shall not be deemed to have approved any
signage or construction referenced therein

     8. INSURANCE: The Subtenant shall comply with all of the provisions of the
Lease as to insurance as if it were the Tenant named thereunder, and shall name
the Landlord as an additional insured on all policies of insurance required by
the Sublease and Lease, and provide the Landlord with a documentary proof

     10. ASSIGNMENT OF TENANT'S RIGHTS: Tenant irrevocably assigns to Landlord,
as security for the performance of each and all of Tenant's obligations under
the Lease, all rent and other consideration received or to be received from
Subtenant. Landlord, as assignee of Tenant, or a receiver for Tenant appointed
on Landlord's application, may (but is not required to) collect such rent or
other consideration provided, however, that until and unless Tenant commits an
Event of Default under the Lease, Tenant shall have the right to collect such
rent or other consideration (subject to any obligation set forth in the Lease
whereby Tenant is to pay all or a part of such rent or other consideration to
Landlord). Such assignment shall be subject to the following terms and
conditions:

               (a) Landlord may collect such rent or other consideration from
          Subtenant only so long as Tenant shall continue to be in default of
          its obligations under the Lease.

               (b) Upon Landlord's written request following the occurrence of
          an Event of Default under the Lease, Tenant shall execute such
          documents as are reasonably requested by Landlord for the purpose of
          confirming to Subtenant that Landlord has the right to collect all
          rent and other consideration otherwise due to Tenant from such
          subtenant or assignee.

               (c) Subtenant has the right and duty to pay rent or other
          consideration otherwise due to Tenant directly to Landlord upon
          receipt from Landlord of a declaration under penalty of perjury
          stating that an Event of Tenant's Default exists under the Lease, and
          in such event, each payment made to Landlord shall be deemed to
          satisfy the obligations of Subtenant to Tenant, but only to the extent
          of such payment.

               (d) Subtenant's payment to Landlord pursuant to this assignment
          shall not create or evidence any direct landlord tenant relationship
          between Subtenant and Landlord, and Landlord may exercise all remedies
          to terminate the Lease (including the termination of Subtenant's
          possession of the Premises or the Subleased Premises) in the event of
          any Event of Default by Tenant, notwithstanding its receipt of any
          payment from Subtenant pursuant to this assignment, unless the receipt
          of such payment completely cures Tenant's default. The acceptance of a
          payment from Subtenant pursuant to this assignment shall not affect
          Landlord's right to its remedies with regard to all defaults remaining
          uncured after such payment.

     11. TERMINATION: The Sublease is and remains subject and subordinate to the
Lease, and a termination of the Lease for any reason (including but not limited
to a default of Tenant) shall terminate the Sublease.

     12. BROKERAGE COMMISSIONS: Landlord has not been represented by a real
estate broker in regard to the transaction represented by this Amendment, and no
brokerage commissions or finder's fees are due from Landlord in regard to the
transaction. Tenant will hold Landlord harmless and indemnify Landlord against
any claim, loss, or damage, including reasonable attorney's fees, in regard to
a brokerage commission or finder's fee claim by a broker or finder and arising
out of this transaction.

                                    Sublease

                                    SUBLEASE

     This Sublease (the "Sublease") is dated as of March 31, 1998, for reference
purposes only, and is made between AboveNet, a California corporation ("Tenant")
and Halcyon Software California, Inc., a California corporation ("Subtenant")

shall not invalidate the waiving party's property insurance. Each party shall
attempt to obtain from its insurance carrier a waiver of its right of
subrogation. Subtenant hereby waives claims against Tenant and Landlord for
property damage to the Premises or its contents if and to the extent that Tenant
waives such claims against Landlord under the Lease. Tenant agrees to obtain,
