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.

Biatchux (DMZS-Biatchux Bootable CD) – a bootable CD distribution of which the goal is to provide a freely available immediately deployable platform for performing forensic analysis, incident response, data recovery, host virus scanning and penetration/vulnerability assessment.

This is still in beta but has proven stable for my needs (developers), which prompted it’s creation. I have tried to ensure >2G file handling capability but have not yet tested with any files greater than 2G. I am trusting Dave Dittrich’s advice and his findings toward proper environment setup for >2G.

It should work on AMD, Cyrix and 486’s or greater with 64M memory or greater (as with all things, more seems to be better, or at least more comfy!), and IDE or SCSI boot cd (selected scsi controllers only). Biatchux has now tested successfully on systems with only 64M Ram.

The project developer are William Salusky and David Zendzian.

Stacy Olivas merged a version of PicoBSD with the FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE-p7. Then he looked into WarLinux, examining how to use it as embedded Linux, and then realized that it could be done with PicoBSD.

He started the WarBSD project, which, according to the maker, is not a new *BSD code fork, but the BSD equivalent of WarLinux. WarBSD is a wireless network auditing tool.
