iloog is a Gentoo-based live CD targeted mainly at students and scientists. It features UnionFS filesystem support that enables you to write everywhere on the LiveCD and install extra packages, a graphical X environment through the Fluxbox window manager, many programming editors and IDEs, and a plethora of scientific applications, including Octave, Namd, Merlin, and full (La)TeX support.
Lan Core is software that lets you build a thin client network on a Windows operating system. It was originally designed to work in a server or workstation with Windows XP Professional and using the native remote desktop protocol or RDP. To this end, the Lan Core package includes: (1) the Preboot Execution Environment or PXE service, a server application used to boot the thin clients (also referred as terminals or clients) in a local area network; (2) the thin client operating system (Thin OS), an embedded system based on Linux; and (3) an interface application used to manage the PXE service and thin clients. The thin clients' boot is done through a local area network (LAN), and it is based on the Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) protocol. In order to do it, Lan Core also provides two additional services: a DHCP server and a Trivial FTP server for Windows, used to assign IP addresses and transfer boot files, respectively.
Fritz!WRT is a set of patches to make the OpenWRT trunk run on AVMs Fritz!Box. Much progress has been made in recent OpenWRT revisions in the AR7 port, but it's still not running on the Fritz!Box. The patches also have the potential to make the T-Com SpeedPort run, because its hardware is very similar to that of the Fritz!Box. There are patches for the bootloader, LED support, and watchdog support, as well as KGDB support.
CD Linux Server is an embedded Linux system on a bootable live CD. It can be used to set up mail, Web, file, FTP, proxy, DHCP, DNS, MySQL, LDAP, and other services very quickly. The mail server includes antivirus, antispam, and mail recorder features. It can be used for free for up to 10 accounts, while the advanced version is licensed for an unlimited number of users. There is not any restriction against the time.
OpenBSD Live-CD Firewall is an OpenBSD-based pf (packet filter) firewall, with NAT, squid, DNS, and a DHCP server (dnsmasq) for internal clients preconfigured. Settings and log files can be saved to a USB device. Saved settings will be restored at the next reboot. Additional security related software is available on the CD (arpwatch, honeyd, ntop, portsentry, etc.)
Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution ("LiveCD") for system administrators, based on Debian testing. You can use it to mount and manipulate hard drives and partitions, monitor networks, rebuild boot records, install other operating systems, and much more.
slakbootIBS (Slackware Interactive Boot Scripts) is an enhanced set of replacement boot scripts for the Slackware Linux distribution. It includes a set of control and dispatch tools for configuring and booting with colorized interactive scripts. The new boot process allows the operator to select or skip start-up components in realtime. It facilitates debugging of startup problems and allows operators to maintain a common baseline to support several local configurations or multiple servers with a single set of scripts.
/etc/net represents a new approach to Linux network configuration tasks. Inspired by the limitations of traditional network configuration subsystems, /etc/net provides built-in support for configuration profiles, interface name management, removable devices, full iproute2 command set, interface dependencies resolution, QoS, and firewall configuration frameworks. /etc/net provides support for the following interface types: ethernet, WiFi (WEP), IPv4/IPv6 tunnels, PSK IPSec tunnels, VLAN, PLIP, ethernet bonding and bridging, traffic equalizer, Pent@NET, Pent@VALUE, SkyStar-2, TUN/TAP, OpenVPN TUN/TAP, usbnet, and PPP. Due to its modular structure, support for new interface types can be added without overall design changes.
