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.
Utmpd is a small and flexible daemon that aims to simplify user access control. It scans the utmp file, looking for logged users, and then kills anyone matching a deny rule. Denial can be based on the time of login, the hostname or IP address from which the login request comes, or the idle time of the user.
