iPXE is a network boot firmware. It provides a full PXE implementation enhanced with additional features such as the ability to boot from a Web server using HTTP, and the ability to boot from a SAN using iSCSI, AoE, SRP, or FCoE. It supports a wide variety of network devices, including wireless and Infiniband networks. iPXE is an effective replacement for gPXE.
DHCP Lease Query in PHP is a PHP class that will allow you to send DHCPLEASEQUERY packets to inquire about known leases from a remote DHCP server. It is similar in nature to ISC's OMAPI but without the hangs it creates, nor does it cause dhcpd to behave in a single-threaded fashion while talking to it. After all, it emulates an actual DHCP "helper" (relay agent) and, as such, all queries travel over IP. It is based on RFCs related to DHCP and follows the RFCs as closely as possible.
ilc-ppp is a collection of new and collected patches and documentation focused on enhancing the features and performance of PPPoE servers running rp-pppoe under Linux. The major new contribution of the package is support for pppoe intermediate agent / tr-101 protocol support for rp-pppoe, along with documentation supporting integration into FreeRADIUS.
Panoptes is a scalable, extensible network and host monitoring tool. It includes a dynamic Web management interface based on the Dojo toolkit. It monitors SNMP, TCP port availability, ICMP, HTTP response and content, and SSL certificates internally. It supports monitoring anything else via shell scripts. It also includes a packet capture tool for discovery of hosts, port, and OS.
DIFFUSE enables FreeBSD's IPFW firewall subsystem to classify IP traffic based on statistical traffic properties. With DIFFUSE, IPFW computes statistics (such as packet lengths or inter-packet time intervals) for observed flows, and uses ML (machine learning) techniques to assign flows into classes. In addition to traditional packet inspection rules, IPFW rules may now also be expressed in terms of traffic statistics or classes identified by ML classification. This can be helpful when direct packet inspection is problematic (perhaps for administrative reasons, or because port numbers do not reliably identify classes of applications). DIFFUSE also enables one instance of IPFW to send flow information and classes to other IPFW instances, which then can act on such traffic (e.g. to prioritize, accept, or deny) according to its class. This allows for distributed architectures, where classification at one location in your network is used to control firewalling or rate-shaping actions at other locations.
bscallmon is a small GUI tool that allows you to view the list of incoming and outgoing phone calls on routers running the BitSwitcher firmware without having to log into the router's Web interface. Features include a phone book, custom icons, unlimited call list size, and optional systray integration and call notification. It does not require compiling and runs on both Unix and Windows systems.
