A large set of basic network services programs
- NetKit provides the clients and servers for many standard Unix
network services. Network logins and talk (among others)
are provided here. Alot of what was previously provided in NetKit-B
is no longer available as a part of this distribution (eg. portmap,
ftpd, and arp).
AppleTalk connectivity programs
- This package enables Linux to talk to Macintosh computers via the
AppleTalk networking protocol. It includes a daemon to allow Linux to act
as a file server for Mac's.
Internet Daemon: Authorization, User Identification
- identd is a program that implements the RFC1413 identification server.
identd operates by looking up specific TCP/IP connections and
returning the user name of the process owning the connection.
SMB client and server
- Samba provides an SMB server which can be used to provide network
services to SMB (sometimes called "Lan Manager") clients, including
various versions of MS Windows, OS/2, and other Linux machines.
Samba also provides some SMB clients, which complement the built-in
SMB filesystem in Linux.
Samba uses NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) protocols and does NOT need
NetBEUI (Microsoft Raw NetBIOS frame) protocol.
- Simple tcp proxy
transfer URL tree
- The snag-o-rama package attempts to transfer an entire html
source tree from a remote URL to the local system.
uses internet talk protocol to create multiuser chat sessions
- ytalk is an extension of the standard Internet 'talk' protocol that allows
more than two users per conversation, redirection of program output to others,
as well as an easy-to-use menu of commands. It uses the same talk daemon
as the standard talk program.
