DC Member Programs and Projects / Advanced Network Configurator
« on: May 22, 2011, 08:59 AM »
G'day all, how are you? It's been a long time :) Hmmm 2 years? Anyway....

Advanced Network Configurator is my latest project.

Advanced Network Configurator is an IP address changer and network tool allowing you to quickly and easily change the IP addresses of your network cards without going through multiple dialog boxes. This is done via separate network profiles for each network interface found on your computer. A network profile consists of an IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway Address and DNS records. Different network profiles can be applied by double clicking on the profile icon or via the system tray icon. The configuration for each profile is located on the right sidebar so you can easily view and change details without going through special dialog boxes. Advanced Network Configurator is aimed at computer professionals and onsite field engineers whose daily job is troubleshooting, fault finding and monitoring various IP equipment. Advanced Network Configurator is donationware.

**** UPDATE ****

Link is back up, GUI and code have been completely redesigned / rewritten and new features have been added

Using the Application
Always, always back up your boot loader config file before using this alpha release. A few days back, I lost (blanked it out) my main GRUb4DOS configuration file (menu.lst) due to a bug. The error is now fixed but still, just make a back up copy.

Please do not replace the bundled mkisofs.exe yet. Although it is possible, there are a few gothchas and should there be an error, it would be hard to track down if you replace the bundeled version. For now, for testing purposes please use the one included and then I will give clear instructions how to replace mkisofs.exe with you rown version and what you need to do.

Known Issues
Please understand that this is an alpha release and although while testing this latest version, I did not find any errors, no software is error free. If you find something wrong, chances are it was not done intentionally.

Hi there,

Well, as you may already know I recently announced a multi-boot multi rescue CD:

I'd like to let you know that the CD has been completed and Beta 1 is ready to be released. These are the distros I have included:

System Rescue CD
Trinity Rescue Kit
Parted Magic
Ultimate Boot CD for DOS
NT Offline Password Recovery
GAG boot Manager
Darik's Boot & Nuke

You are presented with a multiboot menu that lets you launch these operating systems (one per session of course). My question/fear is this. As far as I am aware all of these are all 100% open source GPLed distros especially the Linux ones. Is there anything that I should be aware off before releasing this to the wild? Any copyright trademarks that belong to companies? There is no source code to include, it's all in configuration files. The closest thing to a source code I can include is the batch file which consists of the following command:

mkisofs -o livecd.iso -r -J -l -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/ -V TechCD -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table .

mkisofs.exe will also be included in the ISO. So this means, if you extract the ISO and you run the BuildISO.bat batch file, the ISO will be recreated because the "source" is that as well as the config files inside the dir's file structure in iso_root/gui and iso_root/isolinux.

Newest and best screenshot here:

P.S. mouser, this has already been announced, I wasn't sure where to post my topic so I apologize if I ended up in the wrong forum.

Announce Your Software/Service/Product / The Ultimate Rescue CD
« on: March 23, 2008, 12:59 AM »
Hi there,

I would like to introduce you to something that I have been working on for quite some time. I call this the "Ultimate Rescue CD". I originally intended to keep this private for my own use but some of my friends wanted me to release the ISO. What's your opinion on this?

The background story: Why I created this? We already have a few boot CDs but none of them (in my own opinion) are really complete. So I decided to invest more time into linux and create my own boot CD with all the tools I will ever need. Have a look at the screenshots.

Will you be interested in having something like this and will you intend to test it? This is a critical decision as I am trying to find out whether people are interested or not. I am a bit reluctant to release it due to its size but if interest is shown I will go ahead with it. I am asking because the ISO is 595MB and uploading 595MB on my server might take some time. If this project goes ahead, I will need some servers to host the ISO. The project is consisted of open source software.


Included Software:
The big ones:

   System Rescue CD
   Trinity Rescue CD
   GParted Partition Editor
   Parted Magic
   Ultimate Boot CD for DOS

The little ones but good:
   AIDA System Diagnostic
   NT Offline Password Recovery
   GAG Boot Loader
   Derik's Boot and Nuke

These are all included on the CD/ISO. What do you think?

Also, each of the big ones such as System Rescue CD etc, when you select the entry, another menu is shown with most of the options available to that CD.
