The suggested target hardware are computers less than 5 years old. It should run reasonably fast on older machines and netbooks, but Xfce does need a bit more ram and cpu than the standard ROX/Jwm puppy – probably at least 512MB of ram and 1GHz CPU for decent performance.

Carolina Beta 0.01 was release October 5, 2012 and the latest version 1.3 was released in December 2014.

FREESCO – a NAT/firewall router/server based on Linux and runs on a single 1.44MB floppy. Freesco is very powerful and versatile and can connect multiple home or small office networks to most types of Internet connections including dialup.

FREESCO was developed in the open source tradition as an alternative to routing products offered by Cisco, 3-Com, Accend, Nortel etc. While all of these companies offer products that are well made, the overhead and overall costs can be expensive.

FREESCO is based on the Linux operating system. And incorporates many of the features of other Linux distributions into software that fits onto a single 1.44 meg floppy diskette. With FREESCO, you can configure:
– a simple bridge with up to 10 Ethernet segments
– a router with up to 10 Ethernet segments
– a dialup line router
– a leased line router
– an Ethernet router
– a dial-in server with up to 10 modems (with multiport modems).
– a time server
– a dhcp server
– a http server
– a ftp server
– a dns server
– a ssh server
– a print server (requires TCP/IP printing client software)

FREESCO also incorporates firewalling and NAT, which are resident within the Linux kernel, to help protect you and your network. All of these features can be used in conjunction with each other or individually.

Minimum install requires a 486sx with 12mb of ram. 16+mb of ram is recommended for enabling servers.

The project coordinator and lead developer is Lewis “Lightning” Baughman.
