Latest releases: dwun 0.96e, dial 1.2, gcdial 0.7b


Dwun is a *nix network daemon. It is usually used by clients behind an IP Masquerading (NAT) gateway to bring a network link (e.g. modem) up when at least one person says they want the link to be available, and down when no such clients remain.

Dwun is easy to setup because it can use your existing dial scripts.

Since it can run commands when clients run the CONNECT or DISCONNECT commands, dwun can also be used a generic daemon to run administrator-defined commands on behalf of users. One example of this is to require users to authenticate with dwun before the firewall allows them access.
