Free software is a cornerstone of any modern
free society. We build this foundation.
With your help, we will raise $450,000 this

Broaden your selection: Category/Network-hookup
- Airhook is a reliable data delivery protocol, like TCP. Unlike TCP, Airhook gracefully handles intermittent, unreliable, or delayed networks. Other features include session recovery, queue control, and delivery status notification. Airhook is useful for keeping connections running over bad wireless networks (like CDPD), intermittent dial-up connections, and any other network that doesn't work very well. The implementation includes a TCP proxy (so you can use HTTP, SSH, etc.) and a protocol library for applications that want more control (real-time media delivery, games, etc).
- Antidote is an open source implementation of the IEEE 11073-20601 standard. It also contains the implementation of a D-Bus based 11073 manager service.
- Binkd is a Fidonet mailer designed to operate via TCP/IP networks. As a FTN-compatible internet daemon, it makes possible efficient utilization of TCP/IP protocol suite as a transport layer in FTN-based (Fido Technology Network) networks.
- IP Sorcery
- IP Sorcery is a TCP/IP packet generator. It can send IP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, and IGMP packets from the console or with a GTK+ interface.
- justniffer is a tcp packet sniffer. It captures reassembles and reorders TCP packets, performs IP packet defragmentation and displays the tcp flow and trace timings. It is useful for logging network traffic in a 'standard' (web server like) or in a customized way. It can log http response time, useful for tracking network services performances (e.g. web server, application server, etc.).
- LCDNetstat is a program which displays the TCP/IP connections of a computer on a external LCD screen. It shows the IP of the remote computer, and the port it uses on your computer. If there's no current conection, it shows the most recent one with a timestamp. It use /proc/net/tcp and parses the results to an LCD screen.
- Pac manager
- PAC Manager is a secure connection manager with automatiions, which make it good GNU/Linux and free software replacement for SecureCRT and Putty. Some features include:
- Simple GUI to manage/launch connections to remote machines.
- Scripting possibilities, 'ala' SecureCRT
- Configurable Pre
- TCP Re-engineering
- The TCP Re-engineering Tool monitors and analyzes data transmitted between a client and a server via a TCP connection. It focuses on the data stream (software layer), not on the lower level transmission protocol (as packet sniffers do).
- 'tcpxd' is a TCP/IP relay or proxy, allowing a connection to a port on a system to be forwarded to another port on any other system. It is useful for firewalls and service relocations, and is small, simple, and fast. It's also easier to learn than netcat and supports TCP_NODELAY, alternate local ports, partial connection closures, and non-blocking connects.
- UDPCast allows for the sending of data simultaneously to many destinations on a local net. This can for instance be used to install an entire classroom's PCs at once. The advantage over using other methods (nfs, ftp, whatever) is that udpcast uses Ethernet's multicast abilities: it won't take longer to install 15 machines than it would to install 2. The tool comes with a busybox bootdisk for easy loading of the tool. However, udpcast can also be started from the command line of an already installed system, and can be used for purposes other than just system installation.
