Audiogalaxy's Satellite is a distributed music search agent. It is a small application which does mp3 searching and file transfer and makes a designated directory on your computer searchable by other Satellite users. It features a real-time transaction-based system for file sharing. The Linux version has no user interface, but files are selected via the Web for transfer from other users.
ClusterNFS is a set of patches for the "Universal NFS Daemon" (UNFSD) to allow multiple clients to nfs mount the same root filesystem by providing "tagged" filenames. When a client requests the file "/path/filename", the ClusterNFS server checks for the existence of files of the form "/path/filename$$TAG=value$$". If such a file exists and the client has a matching value for KEY, this file is returned. If the client does not have a matching value or no such file exists, the file request proceeds as normal. Currently supported keys include HOST (hostname), IP (IP number), CLIENT (matches any nfs client) and CREATE (for "tagged" creation of files).
FemFind is a crawler and search engine for SMB shares (provided by Samba/Unix or Windows) and FTP servers. The crawler maps the filesystem structure of your shares to a MySQL database. Then, the Web interface or a Windows client can be used to quickly locate any file on the network.
