adv-samba is a PHP class to batch audit SAMBA resources on remote hosts or large LANs. It's a very handy tool during network audits. For example, imagine a LAN with 500 workstations. You want to find any illegal MP3s on company machines. With this tool, you recursively dump the share directory structure. It works with Active Directory authentication too.
The Ex-Crawler Project is divided into three subprojects. The main part is the Ex-Crawler daemon server, a highly configurable and flexible Web crawler written in Java. It comes with its own socket server, with which you can manage the server, users, distributed grid/volunteer computing, and much more. Crawled information is stored in a database (Currently MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MSSQL are supported). The second part is a graphical (Java Swing) distributed grid/volunteer computing client, including user computer state detection, based on JADIF Project. The Web search engine is written in PHP. It comes with a Content Management System, user language detection and multi-language support, and templates using Smarty, including an application framework that is partly forked from Joomla 1.5, so that Joomla components can be adapted quickly.
