fdgw – a one floppy version of NetBSD/i386, it can run on old machines without HDD and you can use it as small router, natbox or ADSL router. It is a minimal operating system.

Since the floppy size is very limited, it is not possible to build all-in-one box. So, “fdgw” provides several models for several purposes. Each model has different built-in applications and kernel configurations. For example, simplest model, “natbox” model supports IPv6 but ADSL router model not support v6 since ADSL router needs more programs, such as pppd and rp-pppoe, than natbox model.

fdgw is a tool kit to make one floppy version NetBSD from NetBSD source itself. Fundamental usage of fdgw is router (IP forwarding equipment). The “natbox” is a basic router. This model supports both IPv4/IPv6, NAT and DHCP by default. For example, you can use this as a pseudo firewall for your home.

There is ADSL router model (image file is “adslrouter.img”). This model supports NAT, DHCP, and PPPoE (pppd and rp-pppoe) for ADSL.
Fdgw supports many network interfaces in ISA, PCI, PCMCIA and CARDBUS bus as could as possible on NetBSD.

The project developer is Ken’ichi Fukamachi.
