The LANdb Network Management Database provides network managers with an N-birds-with-one-stone solution for cataloging all network hardware, hosts, and connections in a MySQL (or Oracle) database. The application provides an easy-to-use, Web-based frontend with multiple levels of access to data in a multi-user setting. The database is searchable by a number of different parameters (switch, closet, building, port, jack, and custom query).
lando is a command execution system for UNIX. It allows you to run commands as a particular user from somewhere else on your network and see the output on your local machine. It supports authentication via standard /etc/passwd, shadow passwords or PAM. Access control is provided by TCP Wrappers. At present, the only client available is for Win32.
Ldapconf is a linuxconf module providing dialogs and tools to be used for LDAP directory management, configuration, operation, etc. on GNU/Linux systems. It depends on OpenLDAP binaries to do the actual LDAP operations, and includes support for keeping multiple form/config/access profiles, for easy access to directories of various types. The forms and profiles may also be used for managment of remote directories on other servers.
Lhinv 1.1 is a version of IRIX hinv for linux systems, providing a standardized inventory of configured hardware through the proc filesystem. This version supports most of the IRIX flags, plus includes options for mailing the output via SMTP and a CGI wrapper. Lhinv can be used as a test for the existance of specific hardware subsystems and is useful for supporting large numbers of workstations.
LinkScan is an industrial-strength link checking and Web site management tool. It delivers flexible test automation capabilities for the entire spectrum of Web-based applications. LinkScan offers exceptional performance and scalability, and it allows Web masters and quality assurance engineers to quickly create completely automated test suites. It features cross-platform and cross-product compatibility to provide seamless migration. LinkScan operates on AIX, BSDI, FreeBSD, Digital Unix, HP/UX, IRIX, all major Linux distributions, SunOS/Solaris, and Microsoft Windows (95/98/ME and NT 4.0/2000/XP).
The main goal of the Linux Trustees project is to create an advanced permission management system for Linux. The solution proposed is mainly inspired by the approach taken by Novell Netware and the Java security API. Special objects (called trustees) can be bound to every file or directory. The trustee object can be used to ensure that access to a file, directory, or directory with subdirectories is granted (or denied) to a certain user or group (or all except user or group). Trustees are like POSIX ACLs, but trustee objects can affect entire subdirectory trees, while ACLs a single file. Trustees works with the 2.6 Linux kernel.
