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.

ESCLinux

ESCLinux 2014

ESCLinux 2009    ESCLinux 2007

Web site: esclinux.tk
Origin: France
Category: Desktop
Desktop environment: GNOME, Xfce
Architecture: x86
Based on: Arch Linux, Linux Mint
Wikipedia:
Media: Live DVD
The last version | Released: 2014-06-27 | July 27, 2009

ESCLinux – a Linux live-CD, made for carrying interpreters, compilers and libraries for a few IF authoring systems. It boots from the cdrom drive or from an usb key, and doesn’t need any other operative system on the hard drive (e.g. Microsoft Windows) to work. It focuses mostly on Inform, but TADS and Hugo tools are included too.

The first version of ESCLinux was released in 2005 (?) and was based on Knoppix, with KDE desktop as default.
After that, up to version 2009, ESCLinux was based on Arch Linux and was using GNOME desktop environment.
The latest version of ESCLinux 2014 is based on Linux Mint 13 “Maya”, which is based on Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS (Precise Pangolin), and features Xfce desktop as default.

As the developer said (translation from French):

I wanted the system to fit on a mini-CD, but it was expense of available features: this cd was a little too complicated to use optimally for those who do not know linux.

I have restarted this project by releasing it on a complete cd, with a much more modern desktop: KDE. The fact that this cdrom is based on the linux-live script makes it much easier to work with. Unfortunately, it is still not easy to install the live-cd on a hard drive, even if it is possible, this is not for the beginner. On the other hand, it is planned all that it is necessary to connect by the network on this machine (ideal if one has several computers available).

The maintainer of ESCLinux is Eric Forgeot.
