Firewall is a set of scripts (firewall, fwup, and fwdown) that implement an ipchains firewall and various forms of network address and port translation. All you have to do is read the policy file and edit it to reflect your topology and filtering policy. It supports many different types of network topology (single host, traditional forwarding, masquerading, port forwarding, alias port forwarding and NAT), up to 10 untrusted interfaces each with their own policy, and over 50 network applications. It also supports centralised administration of multiple remote firewalls (meta-firewall).
WrapLinux is a utility to wrap a Linux kernel, together with a kernel command line and one or more initrd/initramfs files into a single file in ELF or NBI format. This is required by certain boot protocols, such as Etherboot/Netboot, and may otherwise be desired for consistency reasons. It can be considered a replacement for the mknbi and mkelf utilities.
msulogin is the single-user mode login program used to force the console user to login under a root account before a shell is started. Unlike other implementations of sulogin, this one supports having multiple root accounts on a system. msulogin has been developed as a part of Openwall GNU/*/Linux and is being made available separately primarily for use by other distributions. Currently, msulogin supports only systems with getspnam(3).
TFTP Server is a multi-threaded TFTP server, allowing any number of clients to connect simultaneously. It supports tsize, blksize, and interval options, PXE boot, and can be run standalone or as a daemon. Port ranges can be specified to work across firewalls. There is also a single port version, for situations where additional ports cannot be opened.
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.
Netplug is a Linux daemon that manages network interfaces in response to network cables being plugged in and out. If you're familiar with Windows XP, which just does the Right Thing when you plug an ethernet cable into a laptop, netplug will need no further explanation. Basically, netplug brings up an interface and runs a DHCP client when a cable is plugged into that interface, and it brings the interface down when the cable is unplugged. On a typical Linux system or laptop, you have to run a command (such as "/sbin/ifup") manually to handle these events, but netplug automates this for you.
LILO-Splash-Screen Script-Fu is a script for the GIMP which helps you create fancy splash screens for use with LILO (and the boot-logo patch). It converts an RGB image to an indexed one, selecting appropriate colors for the image and a special region of interest (the current selection) where the boot menu shall reside. This is done by first duplicating the selection and its inversion, converting both to indexed images, then adding a modified color palette (ADD/SUB) required for the menu bar, and finally recombining all palette colors into a single 256 color palette.
