ACP is basically a wrapper for SSH and SCP that allows a user to select, or manually enter, a group of hosts to connect to. The user can run a command or copy some files/directories to multiple hosts by issuing a single command on the "admin" host. It requires the fping program, as it checks the specified hosts for connectivity, and will only try to run the command on/copy files to hosts that are reachable.
The Advanced Bash Scripting Guide is both a reference and a tutorial on shell scripting. This comprehensive book, the equivalent of 1,000+ print pages, covers almost every aspect of shell scripting. It contains 382 profusely commented illustrative examples, a number of tables, and a cross-linked index/glossary. Not just a shell scripting tutorial, this book also provides an introduction to basic programming techniques, such as sorting and recursion. Included scripts are the Game of Life, a Perquackey variant, a Morse code trainer, and an implementation of the Gronsfeld Cipher. This book is suited for both individual study and classroom use. It covers Bash, up to and including version 4.2. Note that users of miniaturized single-board computers running Linux, such as the Raspberry Pi and the Beagle Bone, would find this Guide useful for learning and running Bash scripts to explore and expand the capabilities of these small, but powerful machines.
Advisory Check is a program that reads security advisories for you. It gathers security advisories using RSS, RDF, or XML feeds, compares them against the installed software, and alerts you if you're vulnerable. A wide variety of package managers can be queried to detect installed software. Remote systems can be monitored by using the integrated SSH, Windows-RPC, and Nmap support.
AirSAM is a desktop GUI that compliments the Web based Snort Alert Monitor. AirSAM gives up to date insight into who might be attacking your network. The ultimate goal is to give audio/visual cues right at the time of the attack. AirSAM is an Adobe Air application and should run on Mac OS, Linux, and Windows.
The AirWave Management Platform (AMP) is server software which provides a Web-based UI that gives you a single point of intelligent control for remotely monitoring and configuring multi-vendor wireless access points and other network devices. The AMP software offers device discovery, centralized policy definition, automated configuration management, firmware management, real-time monitoring, diagnostics, and reporting. AMP supports hardware from leading enterprise-grade vendors.
Alert Manager allows you to monitor the output (exit status or text) of any system command and take action when a command fails or succeeds. It was created to handle all alert commands (emailing, paging, etc.) for a production environment in which it is not permissible to lose a single message. It has a very flexible configuration file that allows the creation of "alert chains", chains of alerts, each with its own alert command, fallback command, success command, and other options. It has a method for passing messages (alert text) from the commandline to the various alert commands defined in the configuration file.
Alerttail monitors a given file and executes a list of actions when a user-defined text pattern has been written to the file. For example, the user can pop up a GTK notification window when a certain message is written to a log file. Actions can be alerttail built in actions (GTK notify action, geoipLocalization action, or filtering text action) or a custom user defined shell command action. A Qt 4 GUI frontend helps with configuration.
AlmostVPN is an SSH tunnel manager with a twist. It is packaged as a Preference Panel, so you do not have to use yet another application to configure your tunnels. Instead, it uses creative network configuration techniques to provide almost VPN-like access to remote services, so you can keep using real IP addresses and port numbers while accessing service on the other side of your tunnels. It provides a simple way to mount remote volumes, use remote printers and faxes, access iTunes, iPhoto, and almost any other Bonjour-based application, transfer and execute files, and more.
