gbrctl is a GNOME utility to configure the Linux Ethernet Bridging code as found in Linux kernels version 2.3.47 and higher, and patched 2.2.x kernels. It features fast and easy bridge and port editing and a stack window, displaying images of your active bridges with 'LEDs' displaying the current port statuses.
Remote Methode Call is a project to enable calls to methods in remote C++ classes. The transport is implemented as a library, and is free from dealing with the internal RMC stuff, so any C/C++ programmer is able to write a transport for his own purpose. RMC(2) currently has a sockets transport library as reference implementation. It is developed on Linux, and supports Linux on iX86 and PPC. RMC should also work on BeOS. Testers and developers are welcome to the project.
net-status-monitor is a simple console script to test whether Internet connectivity is working. If it is, the script tells you the external IP address (in case your dynamic DNS provider is down). If not, it tries to find the point where the connectivity fails. The output is quite simple, so you can put it on your grandmother's PC. "Just tell me what the read line says" should give you enough information.
uEagle-ATM is a driver for ADSL USB modems with ADI's Eagle-USB chipset like Sagem Fast 800 or Comtrend CT-350. This driver has been rewritten to adapt to the usbatm library, which is also used by the driver for Speedtouch 330 and Connexant AccessRunner. It is based on Damien Bergamini's ueagle driver for *BSD. It works with Linux kernel 2.6.10 and above. All encapsulations, such as PPPoA, PPPoE, or Routed IP, are taken into account.
PPP Keepalive is a perl script intended to maintain a persistent dialup connection. When the script redials it can then send an email containing your dynamic IP address to an email account or ftp the address to a server. This way you can obtain the current IP address for your box remotely. This also introduces security issues, so use at your own risk.
uidentd (mu-identd) is a fast and secure identd/auth server. It runs on Linux and any other OS that provides the virtual files, /proc/net/tcp and /proc/net/tcp6. It supports IPv6 natively. It is launched from a superserver such as xinetd or tcpserver and is supposedly resistant to buffer overflows since it is written in Perl. It supports configurable connection timeouts and multi-query as defined by RFC 1413.
