There are several different iproutes around -- two for Linux and one for Dos that looks useful (by Dave Mischler) -- I have some notes on that on my home TWiki. I don't know if they have any relationship other than the name.

Here's a starting point for Dave Mischler's Iproute.

There are also some single disk router projects around like the Linux Router Project (IIRC) and freesco (for FREE ciSCO) which sounds promising.

Iproute for Dos

I see the following advantages for the Iproute for dos by Mischler:

  • Works on a machine with 640K RAM and a 720KB floppy drive (no hard drive) -- this is an older version (pre 1.0) -- newer versions may require a larger floppy (1.44 MB). (IIRC, the Linux solutions typically require a minimum of 8 MB RAM and something bigger than a floppy -- I'm sure some work with a CD-Rom which can be a nice solution if you can burn your own so that, in most circumstances, the gateway can never get corrupted / cracked -- the reason you have to burn your own is so that you have a gateway that is properly configured to your machine, including the right IP addresses and/or phone numbers -- also, the dos solution should work on a 286 class machine (not sure about anything less))
  • Might increase the overall security of the Internet or your LAN as it decreases "homogeneity" (currently many crackers attack Windows because it is the most common machine on the Internet (IIUC) -- most attacks on Windows are not effective on Linux, thus having a mix of machines means crackers must split their efforts -- I'm not entirely sure, but I consider the Mischler Iproute on dos to be still a third target (although maybe many Windows cracks are really dos cracks and will also work on dos??)


  • Costs $50
  • Not open source
  • I found it hard to set up, probably partially because I didn't understand networking very well at the time (not sure I do now, either)
  • Requires (required?) NICs that use packet drivers
