ISC DHCP: The ISC Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Distribution provides a
freely redistributable reference implementation of all aspects of the DHCP
protocol, through a suite of DHCP tools. These tools all use a modular API
which is designed to be sufficiently general that it can easily be made to work
on POSIX-compliant operating systems and also non-POSIX systems like Windows NT
and MacOS. Last modification on October 27 2000.

Linux Network Address Translation: ``Network Address Translation (NAT) is a vitally important Internet
technology for a variety of reasons. It can provide load balancing for parallel
processing, it can provide several types of strong access security, and it can
provide fault-tolerance and high-availability. Finally, it can simplify some
basic network administration functions. Below, we sketch the possible uses, and
then follow up with Linux-specific applications.'' Last modification on December 28 2000.
Linux LAN Information: This page is a short and easily accessible way to find the various tools

Netboot: With the Netboot package you can boot a computer with an Intel processor
via an IP network without accessing a harddisk or diskette. Last modification on December 27 1998.
DyDNS: DyDNS brings DNS (BIND) and DHCPd together to create a dynamic DNS
environment for intranets. DyDNS uses lease data files created by DHCPd and
creates a forward lookup table for DNS in its respective directory. The current
version is stable for the things it can do, but much more can be expected out
of it in its later version. Last modification on December 29 2000.
``When I learned to program, you were lucky if you got five minutes
with the machine a day. If you wanted to get the program going, it just
had to be written right. So people just learned to program like it was
carving stone. You sort of have to sidle up to it. That's how I learned
to program.'' Donald Knuth.
