ClarkConnect – a Linux distribution designed to create an easy-to-use server or Internet gateway. Works great in areas such as: firewall, security (antivirus protection, intrusion detection systems, intrusion prevention), router, VPN, proxy servers and content filtering, mail server, teamwork management (groupware), web server, database , files, print, etc. Like most distributions of this type, ClarkConnect has a convenient way to manage everything from a web browser.
This Linux distribution was developed by the software engineers at Point Clark Networks. ClarkConnect was the original name of the operating system which was first released to the public in November 2000. The initial release of ClarkConnect featured a dynamic DNS service and a basic software update service.
Point Clark Networks and the ClarkConnect Linux distribution were acquired by ClearCenter in 2009. ClarkConnect was relaunched as ClearOS in September of that year.
The operating system is free to use with paid subscriptions available that enhance services and support. Software maintenance will be the responsibility of the ClearFoundation whose members are open source proponents.
