NetBSD/i386 Firewall – a NetBSD based, a free highly portable UNIX-like operating system available for many platforms, from 64bit alpha servers to handheld devices. It is a free firewall solution for people with a permanent Internet connection. This includes most users of cable or ADSL services, but also businesses with leased lines. PPPoE support and PPTP support is available on CD.

The base system is kept as lean and mean as possible, but there’s plenty of room to add services, such as your own mail and web server.

The standard NetBSD install has been extensively modified to make install as simple and straightforward as possible, and it is geared towards people who have no Unix knowledge and do not intend to get any.

NetBSD/i386 Firewall supports all the hardware that is supported by a standard NetBSD install.

The minimal configuration for a NetBSD/Firewall system requires a 80486 processor, 8M of RAM and about 40M of disk space. A minimum install of NetBSD is 4 MB of RAM on a 80386, but for a busy firewall, it is recommended a bit higher than that. Of course, you’re free to experiment if you’ve got a 80386 with 4 MB of RAM. Any i386 or better CPU should work – genuine Intel or a compatible such as Cyrix, AMD, or NexGen.

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.

NeWBIE ((Ne)tBSD (W)are (B)urned (I)n (E)conomy) – a live CD based on NetBSD and build in spirit to the well-known FreeSBIE live CD.

Newbie currently caters to the desktop-user (i.e. with applications for web browsing, chat, multimedia, document editing, etc) but will also serve as a core for creating a NetBSD version of Arudius – a network security auditing tool.

It is based on NetBSD, because contrary to the popular opinion, NetBSD is not some obscure *BSD flavor that is only good for powering your toaster, but is a powerful, flexible and highly portable operating system.

NetBSD Live! CD

NetBSD Live! CD – a live version of the NetBSD operating system originally developed by Jörg Braun, and allowed to boot NetBSD 1.5.2/i386 from CDROM, some system config, selection of X config, then allows starting one of several window managers, e.g. KDE. Under KDE, Koffice is ready to run.

Since then, NetBSD based Live CDs have been used in many different environments. They can easily be created using the sysutils/mklivecd package.
The Live iso image features a complete live OS with automatic hardware detection and an option to boot into a graphical desktop KDE, but pekwm is also available.
The last version of LiveCD 2007 contains a specially constructed version of NetBSD 4.0_BETA sporting a modified kernel based on NetBSD-CURRENT.

The NetBSD2 Live cdrom contains a version of the NetBSD operating system version 2.0 with a kernel which boots exclusively from the first ide cdrom drive. All include files, man pages and the compiler programs in /usr/libexec and also the complete package database in /var/db/pkg are deleted in this distribution. All debuggung informations are stripped off the binaries. The cdrom boots with a special eltorito version of the boot loader GRUB. Three different kernel files are selectable:
A slightly modified GENERIC kernel (see the file /stand/CDROM on the cdrom).
An extended version of the ISDN kernel with additional ACPI support (see the file /stand/ISDN on the cdrom).
A modified version of the NetBSD-laptop-kernel (see the file /stand/LAPTOP on the cdrom).
The kernel files on the cdrom cannot be used to boot the operating system from the hard disk! You cannot use NetBSD 2 Live to install NetBSD 2 on the hard disk.
Additional to the files belonging to the operating system itself, the following applications are included:
XFree86 4.3 (libraries, clients, server, fonts exclusively 75 dpi).
KDE 3.2.2 (libs/base, multimedia, games, addons, network, graphics).
KOffice 1.3.1 (editor, spreadsheet, charting, presentation).
Gimp 2.0, XV, and XPaint (pixel oriented graphics).
Sodipodi 0.34 (vector oriented graphics).
Dia 0.93 (workflow diagrams, uml).
bash 2.0.5 (shell).
Some useful console programs as Midnight Commander, joe, colorls, skill, ext2fs-programs, and mtools.
The games ťDiggerŤ, ťXMahjonggŤ, ťXPipemanŤ, and ťLBreakout 2Ť.
For the graphical login kdm is used and as default graphical environment KDE 3.2.2 will be started.

There are two users of the live system: root and user, with a password for both: NetBSD

EdgeBSD – an operating system of the family of BSD-based OS, starting development with the current NetBSD codebase with Git for Source Code Management. Package management is based on pkgsrc.

The primary goal of EdgeBSD is to provide an ambitious environment for working as a bigger community together on the NetBSD Project. This is being achieved thanks to a modern development infrastructure, while taking an aggressive stance on integrating and enabling features.

Ultimately, EdgeBSD aims at being fun and attractive as a Research & Development platform while remaining a modern, robust, and industrial-grade system for all ranges of computer devices.

EdgeBSD should be as attractive a platform as possible, and use the advantages of its existing codebase to experiment on being a modern, safe, and portable Operating System. This vision currently includes:
– advanced facilities for developers (patch management, build environments…)
– re-organization of the base system (Git submodules, packages…)
– a graphical installer;
– modern package management (signed packages…)
– alternatives to Xorg and default desktop environment based on the DeforaOS desktop;
– ready-to-flash images for embedded devices;
– virtualization of components with the RUMP anykernel.

The project development started in 2013.

Jibbed – a bootable live CD based on the NetBSD Operating System that works directly from a CD without touching a hard drive

Jibbed is a (non-installable) live CD based on NetBSD.
It is built from the latest NetBSD sources from the HEAD branch.
Jibbed offers the live system only (no installer included), which lets you learn about the NetBSD without installing it. Automatic hardware detection provides support for a wide variety of graphics cards, sound cards, network interfaces, and USB devices.

The founder and developer of Jibbed is Zafer Aydoğan.
The last version 6.0 was released in 2012.
In October 2015, after 3 years of break, the developer released a new version 7.0.
