BitchX is the premiere IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client. It originally was a modified version of the popular ircII client, and the features were eventually merged into the EPIC IRC client. The current development is aimed at merging the client back to a current branch of EPIC and bringing compatibility and stability back to the client, while bringing the features that are BitchX into a new client.
Kannel is a WAP gateway. It attempts to provide this essential part of the WAP infrastructure freely to everyone so the market potential for WAP services, both from wireless operators and specialized service providers, will be realized as efficiently as possible. It also works as an SMS gateway for GSM networks. Almost all GSM phones can use it to send and receive SMS messages, so this is a way to serve many more clients than just those using a WAP phone. Kannel was among the first WAP gateways to be certified as WAP 1.1 compliant.
The SMS Server Tools send and receive short messages through GSM modems or mobile phones. Messages are stored as text files in spool directories. External programs or scripts of any language can be used to filter, inspect, and answer messages automatically. Events and alarms can be passed to scripts for integration in monitoring tools. The program generates performance statistics as well. This daemon supports 7, 8, and 16 bit character sets as well as binary data (ringtones, logos, wap-push), user data header, flash, and delivery reports.
SCMxx is a console program that allows you to exchange certain types of data with mobile phones made by Siemens. Some of the data types that can be exchanged are logos, ring tones, vCalendars, vCards, phonebook entries, and SMS messages. It works with the following phones: S25, C35i, M35i, S35i, ME45, S45, SL45, M50, and probably some others, too. It basically uses the AT command set published by Siemens (with some other additional resources).
Hotwayd is a POP3/SMTP to HTTPMail (WebDAV) gateway. HTTPMail is a somewhat undocumented WebDAV-based protocol used by a variety of mail servers including Hotmail, MSN, Lycos, and Spray. Hotwayd allows you to use any standard POP3/SMTP mail reader to send and receive mail via these servers, similar to the way that Outlook Express can access a hotmail account. It supports features such as folder selection to get folders other than the inbox and proxy server support (if you require a proxy to access the internet).
sipsak is a command line tool for performing various tests on Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) applications and devices. It can make several different tests, send the contents of a file, and interpret and react on the responses. It supports (de-) registration with given contact URIs and digest authentication.
SPF is a new strategy for preventing junk mail. The present SMTP standard for email allows anyone to forge anyone else's email address. SPF verifies that the Sender address of an email message matches (according to some policy) the client IP address that submitted it. libspf2 is a complete and robust implementation of SPF which provides support for many MTAs. Support for new MTAs is in progress.
StdioTunnel allows you to tunnel arbitrary TCP connections through any shell access connection. If the connection provides a clear 8-bit data path and allows you to start programs, you can use it with StdioTunnel. It tunnels TCP connections in much the same way SSH does, but is useful in particular cases where SSH port forwarding is disabled, and it does not require running or changing the configuration of any server processes on either side of the connection.
