CD Bootable OpenBSD firewall – the project allows you to set up a full featured OpenBSD firewall without the use of a hard disk. The system boots from a CDROM and stores configuration information on either a floppy, or a USB mass storage device, such as a “pen drive” or a USB CompactFlash reader.

The CD also contains a simple install script, to allow you populate a floppy or UMASS device with a basic firewall configuration. Simply boot the CD, select the media you wish to use, and answer some straightforward questions.

The latest version, based on OpenBSD 3.5, adds several new features. The firewall now provides PPTP VPN and a caching nameserver out of the box.

Features:
– OpenBSD 3.5 NAT Firewall using PF
– No hard disk needed
– Automated setup
– Can run with all media Read-Only
– DHCP on internal LAN
– Nameserver and Cache
– PPTP VPN

System requirements:
– x86 compatible processor
– 64M ram bare minimum (all writable filesystems are on ramdisks, and there’s no swap)
– CD-ROM drive
– floppy drive, or umass device (note the current issue with umass)
– 2 network interfaces

The last version | Released: 2004 rc1 | September 8, 2004

FTOSX – a Linux distribution from Italy based on Fedora. It uses the KDE desktop environment and offers support to 32-bit x86 (i686) platform. The goal of the FTOSX Project is to work with the Linux community to build a complete, general-purpose operating system exclusively from open
source software, but specially to be a Personal Operating System.

The FTOSX Desktop Project starts in August 2000, to create a development environment to solve the Graphical User Interface under GNU/Linux OS.
The name “FTOSX” stand for “Future Technologies Operating System based on the Linux Kernel and the X Window System”, therefore, basically X stand for X Window System.

The name is similar to “MacOSX” from Apple Inc, that adopt UNIX inside the OS.
In the past years the FTOSX takes the direction to be the arena to Develop the Personal Operating System, originally called YourLinux.

FTOSX Desktop 2004 is optimized for Pentium PRO (and later) CPUs, but also supports Pentium-class CPUs. This approach has been taken because Pentium-class optimizations actually result in reduced performance for non-Pentium-class processors.
* Recommended for text-mode: 200 MHz Pentium-class or better
* Recommended for graphical: 400 MHz Pentium II or better

The first version was launched on June 19, 2003, the latest version was 2004 rc4 which was launched on September 8, 2004.
FTOSX was managed by a single person: Dr. Giovanni A. Orlando.

The last version | Released: 1.6.1 | February 2, 2004

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.

ekkoBSD – a core OS offers security, stability, and flexibility to your infrastructure. As a default installation, it gives you an email server, Web Server, ssh, and several other services that would normally need to be added and secured. The goal of the ekkoBSD project is to provide a safe, secure, and simple to administer network operating system.

The project was founded and managed by Rick Collette, and coded by other programmers as well.

A concept that had been with ekkoBSD since its beginning were the implementations of “Single Servers”. These are much like the single-floppy firewalls, rescue discs, etc. found within PicoBSD.

The ekkoBSD project’s end was announced on the home page on July 18, 2004.
