Projects / s6-networking


s6-networking is a collection of small Unix tools designed to help networking. It includes clock synchronization, Unix and TCP super-servers, Unix and TCP access control, and other miscellaneous utilities. It is particularly suited for management of clients and servers on embedded devices, but works just as well on larger systems.
