- Aria is a download tool similar to Reget or GetRight. It downloads files from the Internet via HTTP or FTP. The transfer can be paused, resumed, queued, and saved. You can paste URLs from the clipboard, pasting as many as you want at a time. It has a friendly GTK-based GUI and useful log consoles. It supports URL list import, CRC checking, an HTTP proxy server, HTTP recursive downloads, defining specific file retrieval procedures for particular servers, and cut-and-paste.
- aria2 is a utility for downloading files. It has completely new design concept from its predecessor, Aria, and is written from scratch. aria2 has a segmented downloading engine in its core. It can download one file from multiple URLs or multiple connections from one URL. This results in very high speed downloading, much faster than ordinary browsers. This engine in was implemented in a single-thread model. The architecture is clean and easy to extend. aria2 currently supports HTTP, FTP, and BitTorrent. It also supports Metalink version 3.0.
- 'authfail' is a tool for adding IP addresses to an ACL when entities from those addresses attempt to log into a system, but cause authentication failures in auth.log. It reads data from auth.log in real time and adds the IP into netfilter with a DROP/REJECT policy.
- 'AutoScan' is an application designed to explore and manage your network. Entire subnets can be scanned simultaneously without human intervention. It features OS detection, automatic network discovery, a port scanner, a Samba share browser, and the ability to save the network state.
- Hosts files will reroute unwanted traffic from ad farms, behavioral tracking firms and malware sites to a blackhole; routing to 0.0.0.0 (localhost; your PC) when a request is made to a URL on the blacklist. Which means any traffic that would have left your system for that destination, is sent inward, to your localhost and then abandoned. Despite what some may suggest, hosts files are not "1980s technology" and still very useful today, as an additional layer of security. Hosts file are a useful redundancy when coupled with ad blockers like uBlock Origin and uMatrix - while debugging or 'Temporarily Allow All on this Site' with Noscript can open you up to underlying attacks or privacy intrusions. In-browser filters won't protect you if the browser itself is phoning home. If you have an up-to-date hosts file, the risk is severely lessened. Auto Hosts will automate the setup process for maintaining an up to date hosts file, by: - Installing a weekly cronjob to pull fresh/updated copies of hosts lists (default is every Sunday at 7:22pm) (Default custom_filters and firefox-includes) source appends Facebook trackers, Linkedin ads, Google fonts, Firefox telemetry and other harvester sites that curated lists for whatever reason, have not added to their blacklists - Refreshes DNS to instantiate the re-routed changes (Mac Only) If Devdom is installed, append all local virtualhosts (if it is installed - it is -not- a requirement! Autohosts does a conditional check to ensure your dev environment doesn't break if you're using Devdom. Read the code.) - Uninstall offers the ability to revert to a fresh hosts file and undo any changes made by Autohosts; a backup will be copied to /tmp - Add custom blacklists, whitelists and host sources from ~/autohosts on your desktop
- Autossh is a program to monitor and automatically reestablish SSH connections. It is similar to rstunnel (Reliable SSH Tunnel), but is easier to set up and use, especially for connections to multiple hosts. The program monitors connections by using a loop of port forwardings, and will back off on the rate of connection attempts when experiencing rapid failures (such as connection refused).
- BIRD is a dynamic routing daemon for UNIX-like systems. It should support all routing protocols used in the contemporary Internet, such as BGP, OSPF, RIP, and their IPv6 variants. It also has a very flexible configuration mechanism, and a route filtering language.
- BW whois 2
- BW whois is a whois client that works as a command line tool or as a Web application. It includes configurable with self-detecting CGI support, multiple security options in the CGI mode, a mature TLD table, database caching (using MySQL), and many more options and features.
- Balance is a simple but powerful generic TCP proxy with round-robin load balancing and failover mechanisms. Its behaviour can be controlled at runtime using a simple command line syntax.
- BannerKiller is a very simple HTTP proxy that lets you filter pages by forbiding pages whose URLs match some pattern. It can be used for censorship or to filter ads, and is particularly valuable for people with slow connections who normally have to wait for banner ads to download before they can view a page. The software is no longer currently being developed; the authors suggests the program SwiftSurf in place of bannerkiller.
