GNU Alive

Autologin and keep-alive daemon.

Alive is a keep-alive program for internet connections. It repeatedly pings a series of user-specified hosts, thereby encouraging (one hopes) the involved networks to not disappear.

Previously known as qadsl, it was created to automate the annoying login process of several Swedish ISP's, e.g., Telia ADSL, COMHEM and Tiscali.

This is a GNU package.
