konspire is a searchable, distributed file-sharing system featuring resumable file transfers and fast, exhaustive substring searches of all hosted file names on the network. konspire is written using pure Java. Load from processing search requests is distributed throughout a dynamically connected network of servers. Several fault-tolerant features ensure system correctness and reliability.
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).
UDPCast allows to send data simultaneously to many destinations on a local net. This can for instance be used to install entire classrooms of PCs at once. The advantage over using other methods (nfs, ftp, whatever) is that udpcast uses Ethernet's multicast abilities: it won't take longer to install 15 machines than it would to install 2. The tool comes with a busybox bootdisk for easy loading of the tool. However, udpcast can also be started from the command line of an already installed system, and can be used for other purposes than just system installation.
Gtk-Gnutella is a full-featured Gnutella client using GTK+. It contains all widely deployed Gnutella features, including DHT support. It is extremely efficient, using little CPU time and memory. It is meant to be left running 24x7. It is fully compatible with UPnP and NAT-PMP, and as such is easy to use behind a firewall supporting one of these port mapping technologies.
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.
