QDPF was written to solve the problem of exposing internal services to the Internet. It runs on machines which bridge two networks and forwards TCP/IP packets from one to the other. Its main use is to expose corporate or Intranet services to the Internet, by running it on an intervening machine. TCP sessions can also be followed in detail using the 'trace' option. QDPF is a Java console application.
Bandwidth Management Tools is a total bandwidth management solution for Linux and can be used for firewalling, traffic graphing, and shaping. It is not based on any currently-available bandwidth management software and supports packet queues, bursting, complex traffic flow hierarchies, flow groups, traffic logging, and a simple real-time monitoring front-end.
