icecream is a non-interactive stream download utility. It connects to icecast and shoutcast servers and redirects all fetched content to an stdin-capable player or to media files on your disk. With an option turned on, it can save the stream into different files, each representing the played track. It is also possible to tee the input to both disk and stdout.
SmartBOX is an easy-to-install, easy-to-manage, resilient, and feature-rich network server with an emphasis on ease of use and data security and with minimal hardware requirements. The design of this system is entirely based upon research into the voluntary and community organization (VCO) sector by team members of the Illuminate ICT project.
DrFTPD is an FTP server written in Java. It does not handle transfers in the same way that normal FTP servers do. Instead, it merges multiple FTP sites into one, creating a distributed FTP site/FTP cluster containing one master and many slaves/nodes. When a client wants to transfer a file from DrFTPD, DrFTPD finds the slave which has the file, and tells the appropriate slave to transfer the file instead of handling it itself. This allows huge gains in total bandwidth and disk capacity.
Libbt is a C-language implementation of the BitTorrent protocol suite for Unix that was designed to be linked into a variety of languages. It is implemented as a memory-efficient single threaded library, and has fdset maintenance that can be used to either add in to your select loop or its own main loop.
NetMess is a peer-to-peer file sharing system. Its advantages over other p2p systems include clone detection and the ability to work through an HTTP proxy and through most firewalls (both inbound and outbound). NetMess can also run in a LAN environment, serving as a nice information sharing system for small to middle-sized companies. NetMess allows its users to search and retrieve documents without having to remember their exact location.
Mutella supports all the functionality required to participate as a full-featured node in the Gnutella network (which implies support for file search, download, and sharing). It is optimized for a high-bandwidth connection where it sets standards for the server performance and stability, but it can also run on a modest-speed line. It features real multiple search support, passive search (all query-reply packets are checked against local search list), automatic re-submission of the queries, unlimited download retry, automatic search for alternative locations when download fails to start immediately, auto-get function for broken downloads, and much more.
OpenLMS is a Learning Management System (LMS) made at the Department of Geography, NTNU. The system is a fully functional LMS with support for group collaboration, file sharing, distribution of lectures, and other supporting features. It is a good tool for distributing lecture notes to groups of students, and for faciliating collaboration for groups of students and teachers.
6's Spiffy AudioGalaxy Query Tool is a package that automates queries to the AudioGalaxy music sharing system. It enables you to queue any song (at a minimum configurable bitrate) with one command line, even if the AudioGalaxy site is busy or unresponsive. It will also allow you to queue most full albums with one command line, by going on AllMusic.Com to look up the song list, and queueing up each of the songs listed.
