AbulÉdu is a Ubuntu-based distribution for primary schools. It is currently in French but most of the tools can be translated. An AbulÉdu server can handle Mac, Windows (samba), GNU/Linux and X terminal (with LTSP) clients. The server acts as a central gateway for Web, mail, and printing, and facilitates the management of classes, pupils, and teachers. Everybody can publish Web pages on an intranet using Apache and all administration tasks are performed using a browser. The result is that a teacher who is not a computer specialist can install and manage a school network.
TorrentFlux is a feature rich Torrent client. Users can manage Torrent downloads through a Web interface from anywhere.

It has built-in user management and security as well as private messaging between users. Each user is able to select their own theme and view the upload history. For administrators there is a detailed user administration and searchable logs. Various languages are supported.
Proximate is a social peer-to-peer (P2P) application designed for local device to device networking. It provides social communities with several user functions: Messaging, file sharing, and message boards. The application is designed to be completely P2P, i.e. servers are not needed. It only assumes TCP/IP networking, which means that it works over wireless/wired links such as ad hoc WLAN and Ethernet LAN. The application is written in Python for GNU/Linux systems with a GTK+ GUI, Nokia N900 being the primary platform.
This program is a TFTP server. It is intended to run as a user-initiated program, rather than a service daemon, and displays a GUI interface allowing the user to stop and start the TFTP server. It provides a simple TFTP server for engineers to download and upload configuration files from equipment such as routers and switches.
GoAnywhere Gateway acts as an enhanced reverse proxy that provides an additional layer of network defense. It allows your trading partners to connect to GoAnywhere Services without having to open incoming ports into your private network or store sensitive information in the DMZ. GoAnywhere Gateway is certified VMware Ready. GoAnywhere Gateway serves as a transparent interface between external clients and GoAnywhere Services without exposing sensitive files and the private network. This is an essential solution for meeting strict security policies and complying with state privacy laws, HIPAA, PCI DSS, SOX, and GLBA.
UDPCast allows to send data simultaneously to many destinations on a local net. This can for instance be used to install entire classrooms of PCs at once. The advantage over using other methods (nfs, ftp, whatever) is that udpcast uses Ethernet's multicast abilities: it won't take longer to install 15 machines than it would to install 2. The tool comes with a busybox bootdisk for easy loading of the tool. However, udpcast can also be started from the command line of an already installed system, and can be used for other purposes than just system installation.
Although widely used, currently popular peer-to-peer (P2P) applications offer no user privacy. By design, services like BitTorrent and Gnutella share data with anyone that asks for it, allowing a third-party to systematically monitor user behavior. As a result, using a P2P network means that your online activities become public knowledge. OneSwarm is a peer-to-peer tool that provides users with explicit control over their privacy by letting them determine how data is shared. Instead of sharing data indiscriminately, data shared with OneSwarm can be made public, shared with friends, shared with some friends but not others, and so forth.
