Projects / Mice


Mice (Mundungus Internet Connection Enhancer) is a server designed for a home network where one machine has a modem to connect to the Internet. Clients on other machines can communicate with the server and ask it to connect to the Internet. The server keeps track of client requests and disconnects when all clients no longer require connection. Mice server does not connect to the Internet itself--it relies on programs such as pppd to do that. An example set-up using pppd is supplied.

    Release Notes: The server can interrogate the clients to check that they are still responding and, if neccessary, terminate the internet connection. The reason for this is that on a wireless network, if the network is disconnected, the server does not recognise that the client has disappeared for some time. Telnet clients should respond to the check but this is not guaranteed.
