NeTraMet is a network accounting meter. It builds up packet and byte counts for traffic flows, which are defined by their end-point addresses. Addresses can be ethernet addresses, protocol addresses or 'transport' addresses, or any combination of these. NeTraMet provides a valuable tool for analysing network traffic flows, and should prove to be of interest to anyone interested in network monitoring, capacity planning, performance measurement, etc.
FrazierWall Linux is a single floppy distribution Linux firewall that is based on the Linux Router Project. It is designed for use with ethernet base internet connections (such as cable modems or xDSL lines). It allows you to share such a connection with several other computers on a LAN. It is easy to setup and maintain, and is available in a Linux configurable software version.
Multidialnet is a curses-based tool that runs on a machine that hosts a shared dial-up Internet connection. This program will not only allow users to make the connection, but also log the usage and work out how much the phone call cost. It should work equally well with any sort of non-permanent connection - not just analogue modems.
This is an example script showing how to make Netware or KixTart like login scripts with Samba. It demonstrates how to make drive mappings based upon username and/or group membership, and how to insert a user-/machinename in a BIND8 DNS server, so you can have a dynamic DNS server with which you can resolve a username/machinename to an IP address.
