Diald manages network links, particularly on-demand links such as dial-up SLIP or PPP. It can also be used to manage and/or monitor any network interface. Diald monitors traffic on the link and makes intelligent (and highly configurable) decisions as to when the link should be brought up or taken down. The included control program, dctrl, runs on any system with Tcl/Tk (yes, even Windows) and allows diald to be controlled and monitored remotely.
dict_pgsql is a dictionary for the mailer postfix. It is able to get all virtual users out of a postgres database; this is very helpful if you have a large number of users who make updates on their aliases quite often. You don't have to extract all the values into system files; the entries will be fetched directly from the database.
Dip handles the connections needed for dialup IP links, like SLIP or PPP. It can handle both incoming and outgoing connections, using password security for incoming connections. It has a command mode (an interactive program to set up an outgoing IP connection), dialout mode (interprets chat script to dial out and open an IP connection), and dialin mode (login shell for handling incoming IP connections, as in dialup SLIP and PPP connections).
dircproxy is an IRC proxy server ("bouncer") designed for people who use IRC from lots of different workstations or clients, but wish to remain connected and see what they missed while they were away. You connect to IRC through dircproxy, and it keeps you connected to the server, even after you detach your client from it. While you're detached, it logs channel and private messages as well as important events, and when you reattach it'll download those logs to you using ordinary IRC protocol.
The DNEWS News Server is a (USENET) news server. Installing your own local news server software gives you complete control to create your own discussion forums for communication. DNews News Server software provides many features, including ease-of-use, reliability, and scalability.
The Download Slave is a very flexible script which is controlled via eMail and stores files requested for downloading on the server's harddisk or sends them via eMail to the user who asked for them. Users are identified by their eMail address and a personal password, so only authorized users can use the service.
DreamBot is an experimental IRC bot totally written in Perl. Its main features include a totally dynamic user and channel list (no need to deal with text files), a learning ability that's similiar to infobot, built-in seen and topten talkers support, notes/memos, pasting of Freshmeat and Slashdot news, and Babelfish (Altavista) translation. DreamBot doesn't require any extra Perl modules.
drsync is a Perl wrapper for rsync which keeps track of the filelist between synchronizations. If you delete a file in one place, it will delete it in the other place; if you add a file, it copies to the other place. It is ideal for notebook users who want to keep data in two (or more) different places. It is also good for the Linux PDAs (Agenda, iPAQ, Yopi, etc.), to keep data synchronized with the desktop. The requirements are designed to be minimum.
