NetConnect is a command line tool for automating the login process to routers, switches, or UNIX hosts and any intermediate devices or proxies in the path. It does this by using credentials supplied within a configuration file. It also allows users to run Perl based scripts on a single device or devices in parallel to automate tasks. Although it was originally designed around Cisco routers and switches, it can be extended to work with any CLI based device by specifying custom prompts that different devices use. It works well with Cisco routers and switches as the concepts around "enable" mode and the corresponding syntax of the prompt are contained within the source. Devices can be stored within your configuration file, so you are able to connect to devices using a portion of their name (using regular expressions) as opposed to having to remember IP addresses or full DNS names.
skd is a small daemon which binds to a UDP, TCP, or Unix-domain socket, waits for connections and runs a specified program to handle them. It is ideal as a secure, efficient replacement for traditional inetd. It is also an easy-to-use tool for non-privileged users wanting to run their own network services. Datagram and stream sockets are available in both the Internet and Unix namespaces, each with the expected inetd behavior. In the Internet domain, IPv6 is supported in addition to IPv4. skd also supports connection limits, verbose logging of connections, dropping of privileges, forking into the background with a pidfile, and redirecting stderr to syslog or a file. Some of these facilities (such as forking into the background, privilege dropping, and logging) are also useful for standalone, non-network services and can be used without binding any socket.
BACnet is an implementation of the BACnet (Building Automation and Control Networks) protocol specifically tailored for embedded systems. BACnet itself is a standard routable protocol designed to handle communications in automation in buildings, such as air conditioning systems and other HVAC equipment.
cpt aims to be running in front of any HTTPS server. It forwards all requests that don't call for a "CONNECT .." to the normal HTTPS server. There is no error handling for mistaken requests; they go straight to the default server. A request that doesn't pass the conditions is passed forward too, and the Web server will handle it (with the default error page). Users should be unaware that cpt is running as a proxy.
Coherence is a set of DLNA/UPnP devices, like MediaServer and MediaRenderer. In addition, it includes a well-designed framework to extend other applications with DLNA/UPnP functionality. It also has an emerging DBus API, enabling these applications to participate in digital living networks. It supports Playstation 3 (PS3), XBox, and many other devices.
