  • Media: Live DVD
  • The last version | Released: 2013-2 | January 16, 2013

Netkit Live – a live Linux distribution based on Knoppix, and features Netkit exploits open source software (mostly licensed under GPL) and is heavily based on the User Mode Linux (UML) variant of the Linux kernel.

Netkit is an environment for setting up and performing networking experiments at low cost and with little effort. It allows to “create” several virtual network devices (full-fledged routers, switches, computers, etc.) that can be easily interconnected in order to form a network on a single PC. Networking equipments are virtual but feature many of the characteristics of the real ones, including the configuration interface.

Netkit consists of three components: a core including the user interface and the documentation, a kernel for the virtual machines, and a filesystem containing the networking tools and services. These components are distributed separately to limit the impact of updates, however all the components are required for Netkit to work properly.

Netkit is the result of the joint work of several people from the Computer Networks Laboratory of the Roma Tre University and from the Linux User Group LUG Roma 3.
