ClipboardSharing is a Mac OS X application that allows you to share the contents of your clipboard with other users, either across the network or locally. You can easily transfer just about anything that can be copied to the clipboard, including formatted text and images. The effect of this is that you can select something on one computer, copy it, and then quickly paste it on another computer.
Do you collaborate with other people on your LAN? If so, you might sometimes have found the need to get a URL, an image or some text from one computer to another. With ClipboardSharing these transfers are as simple as copy and paste.
Do you use more than one computer yourself? Then activate the automatic synchronization so that the clipboard is always the same on all of them.
Do you have several accounts on your computer, and switch between them with Fast User Switching? ClipboardSharing might come in handy to quickly get data between the accounts.
ClipCommControl extends Copy/Paste so it works across multiple networked* Macs. Effectively, this enable you to share clipboards among Macs on your network.

Most programmers are familiar with transporting data by hitting Ctrl-C (or Command-C) to copy to the clipboard, then changing applications and pressing Ctrl-V to paste. But what if you wanted to share a clipboard between two different computers on a network? Sure, you could paste to a file, save the file in a central location, open the file on the other machine, and then highlight the data again and Copy and Paste...
Or you could just use a neat little program called CrossClip.
CrossClip runs transparently in the background (on each computer) and performs both sending and receiving functions as necessary, which means the data can be sent in either direction between computers. Transporting can be set up to be triggered automatically, or manually via mouse-click from the CrossClip menu (for those times when you don't want every Ctrl-C to be broadcast to all the other CrossClip applications within the network group).
There's no fancy compiling necessary, just use the effortless installer. Oh, and did we mention that this works on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux... or even between them on the same network? Cross-platform clipboards, now that's news!
Crystalfire Wormhole 2.4
Wormhole is a file transfer utility for Mac OS X and Windows 95/98/ME/XP/2000. It requires only a TCP network (such as most LANS and the Internet), in order to allow cross-platform file transfers.
Sure, there are other ways to move files between Windows and Mac, but many users prefer the simplicity of Wormhole. Need to transfer a file on your home network or office LAN? Just launch Wormhole on both machines, and you're ready to go! Wormhole automatically locates the other one, and a colorful "wormhole" window appears on each computer. Drop the file you want to transfer onto one "end" of the wormhole, and it will are immediately be transferred to the other!
Wormhole is multiple-computer friendly. It can copy Windows to Windows, Windows to Mac, and Mac to Mac (Mac to Mac copies even copy the resource fork correctly!) And since Wormhole is implemented completely as an application, there are no extensions or DLL's to mess up your computer.

If you've ever wondered what's going on behind the scenes on your network, then Flame can show you.
Bonjour has been described as "no-pain networking". If you've ever used iTunes and seen shared libraries popping up without having to configure anything, then you'll know that it really is painless. That's not to say that it's perfect. If you see someone's sharing their music, how do you see if they're also sharing photos with iPhoto?
Just start Flame to see all the computers on the network that are advertising services. (If it can, it'll identify the user of each computer instead of giving you the machine's name.) Disclose the services available from each. You can even delve right into the service record to see the gory details, if you like that sort of thing.
Unlike existing browsers, which group by service, Flame groups by the machine they're on. This means that you can see the links between services; "Tom's Music" is being shared by the iChat user "Tom", who also has an iPhoto library, "My Holiday Snaps", and a web server. No need to wonder who's doing what any more.
FrameSeer is an inexpensive network packet capture application for the Apple Macintosh.
Packet-capture applications go by a variety of names including, sniffing tools or sniffers (after the Network Associates "Sniffer" product), frame grabbers, packet monitors, and protocol analyzers.
Packet-capture tools are essential aids for diagnosing communications problems, investigating network security breaches, and for general network performance monitoring and troubleshooting tasks.
FrameSeer is a native Mac OS X ("Cocoa/Aqua") application and will help you to diagnose network faults with confidence. Once you've used FrameSeer to track down your first network problem, you'll reach for it whenever your network hiccups.
FrameSeer can capture traffic on your Ethernet, AirPort, PPPoE (eg aDSL or cable-modem), PPP (eg dial-up modem) and loopback interfaces.
GeekTool is a PrefPane (System Preferences module) to show system logs, unix commands output, or images (i.e. from the internet) on your desktop (or even in front of all windows).

Everything you need to have is bundled in; there is no compiling or command line use necessary.
A powerful instant text messaging application, iChat comes with Mac OS X and is loaded with great features that make sending messages to your AIM or MobileMe buddies fast and easy. Simple text chats feel like natural conversations, with icons and thought bubbles that make it easy to see who's saying what. And you can transmit any kind of file - from a web address to a photo - by simply dragging it into your chat. Pictures display right in the message window, web links open in a browser with a click. In short, iChat is the best way to IM.
Most Mac computers include a built-in iSight camera and mic. When you use them with iChat, you get the easiest way to have high-quality video and audio chats with your friends and family. You can chat with just one other person or make it a party by starting a multiway chat. Featuring a three-dimensional view, iChat practically puts everybody in the room with you. View their faces reflected into space, just as if they were sitting around a conference room table. And with video backdrops built into iChat, you can make it look like you're chatting from the Eiffel Tower, under the sea, or your own custom backdrop.

WAP (wireless application protocol) sites are a special kind of websites (in XML/WML format) that can be displayed on many cell phones (works best with GPRS/3G UMTS). Until today, setting up a proprietary WAP server has been a big fuss and tools to set up WAP web pages are extremely rare. But now there is help: iWapper can do it all for you -- and even for free (or for a tiny fee -- see below)! iWapper can generate WAP sites for you; not only you can use text styles, images and place links (even download links, email links and phone call links are possible!); iWapper can also store clips from real-world www-webpages in an intelligent way, so that it can update dynamic content automatically and put it into WAP files. New iWapper 2.0 release even adds RSS functionality, so that RSS news feeds can be automatically transferred into WAP pages. Moreover, iWapper generates an automatic WAP index page for you -- one size fits all!

LANrev, a comprehensive systems management application developed by pioneers in the field, is designed to make IT management more efficient by conforming to your existing business processes, without imposing new burdens - adapting to your network architecture, and managing your systems and software as they are, while empowering you to take control of your assets.
Networking isn't always as easy as it should be: Ever tried to let a colleague connect to an HTTP or SSH server running on your Mac when you're in your home network behind your NAT router? Or to work together on a document in SubEthaEdit? Or get good download rates in your favorite BitTorrent client?
Without port forwardings, it just won't work, but static port mappings that you can set up in your router are cumbersome to use, only work with static IP addresses and are lost when you buy a new router.
Not so with Lighthouse. Being a dynamic port forwarding utility, starting and stopping port mappings is just a click away. Or even better, let Lighthouse start a port forwarding automatically when you launch an application!
Want to use a port mapping on your desktop and later on your laptop? Static mappings just won't cut it, but Lighthouse will! And living in your menu bar, it's always there, right at your fingertips!

MarcoPolo brings location-aware computing to your portable Mac computer. It allows your computer to determine its location through gathering evidence from your environment (evidence sources), using fuzzy-logic and rule-based matching to make an educated guess (rules), and then performing arbitrary actions upon changing location (actions).
MarcoPolo is built upon the Mac OS X concept of a "network location". This is a collection of settings for your computer's networking, which allows changing numerous parameters at the same time (Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Network). Using this network location system saves considerable time and effort, but you still have to explicitly switch to the correct location each time. MarcoPolo fills this gap, and extends it to allow a much wider range of location-specific configuration and actions.

Nagios is a host and service monitor designed to inform you of network problems before your clients, end-users or managers do. It has been designed to run under the Linux operating system, but works fine under most *NIX variants as well. The monitoring daemon runs intermittent checks on hosts and services you specify using external "plugins" which return status information to Nagios. When problems are encountered, the daemon can send notifications out to administrative contacts in a variety of different ways (email, instant message, SMS, etc.). Current status information, historical logs, and reports can all be accessed via a web browser.
NetBoot Across Subnets 1.2
Due to the way that most routers are configured, NetBooting is typically constrained within a subnet. This means that if you wanted to NetBoot all the machines in your organization (and I don't mean simultaneously) you would have two choices:
- 1. Have your network administrator configure your routers to pass BSDP information along to your NetBoot server or
- 2. Maintain a NetBoot server on every subnet of your network.
While the first option is the "Right Way" to do NetBooting across subnets, it is poorly documented and often includes political battles that many people would rather not fight. Option 2 is costly and probably not the most efficient use of resources, especially if you only NetBoot your machines once every few months for the purpose of reimaging them.
So what is left for those of us that simply want to occasionally NetBoot a bunch of machines scattered across a rather robust but fragmented network?
Try NetBoot Across Subnets.
NetCheck is an OSX native application that provides an array of network monitoring, email alerts, logging, and reporting features. NetCheck not only provides immediate customized alerts, but also provides the historical outage information that we need to work with our business partners on quality service issues using historical patterns seen in our NetCheck logging and reporting. This enables us to identify problems and work issues that otherwise would go unnoticed.
The main focus of this application is uptime monitoring of critical devices and applications, along with the features which provide this -- email alerts, logging, and reporting. You can create an EMAIL group for each special interest group and site, then create an ICMP/Port Monitoring entry that associate all devices and applications being monitored with that email group created for the site. This application was written natively in Objective C to be a native OSX application.
Net Monitor 4.5.2
Net Monitor graphs a histogram of network activity of local and remote computers in a floating window, the Dock, the Menu Bar or in a regular window. Net Monitor is highly customizable. Net Monitor includes special features for PPP connections, like connect/disconnect & auto reconnect (not available for remote computers).
The all new netOctopus Software Delivery System (SDS) automates the most time consuming and costly parts of deploying software across your network. With netOctopus, software updates, or new software roll-outs can be scheduled and run from a centralized location, using custom installer packages you create. But one of the most overlooked parts of software distribution comes long before the applications are installed. Use netOctopus to determine whether your company is in compliance with software licensing agreements; to determine which systems need upgrades; to find out what machines may need OS or hardware upgrades before you can even install the new software. netOctopus can dramatically reduce your preparation and planning time for every software roll-out.

Nmap ("Network Mapper") is a free open source utility for network exploration or security auditing. It was designed to rapidly scan large networks, although it works fine against single hosts. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics. Nmap runs on most types of computers and both console and graphical versions are available. Nmap is free and open source.

In Mac OS X, by default, you are limited to sharing only what is in your public folder in your home directory. This program makes it easy to share any folder. In addition SharePoints also brings back users and groups management to Mac OS X as well as easy configuration of AppleFileServer (AFS) and Samba (SMB) Server properties.
Sharity is a client for the SMB protocol (Server Message Block), also known as CIFS protocol (Common Internet File System). This is the file-sharing protocol used by Windows, OS/2, Samba and many others. Sharity mounts these servers in your file system. Mounting means that you can open files directly from the server with any application you like, as if they were on a local disk. Other clients (such as smbclient from the Samba suite) provide only an ftp-like interface where you can copy files to and from the share but cannot open them directly.
Secure messaging, alerts, reminders and file transfers provide full-featured inter- and intra-office communication.

In 1998, Martin Roesch wrote an open source technology called Snort, which he termed a "lightweight" intrusion detection technology in comparison to commercially available systems. Today that moniker doesn't even begin to describe the capabilities that Snort brings to the table as the most widely deployed intrusion prevention technology worldwide. Over the years Snort has evolved into a mature, feature rich technology that has become the de facto standard in intrusion detection and prevention. Recent advances in both the rules language and detection capabilities offer the most flexible and accurate threat detection available, making Snort the "heavyweight" champion of intrusion prevention.
SOHO Organizer 8.31
SOHO Organizer is the official successor to Personal Organizer and Group Organizer and represents a 100% Cocoa rewrite of the former products. This means SOHO Organizer presents a first-class Mac OS X experience complete with all the features Mac OS X users expect: Aqua interface, Unicode compliance, built-in spell checking, Service support, etc. Finally, the true benefit of a complete Cocoa rewrite is that SOHO Organizer is built for the future and can easily accommodate future technologies (think Intel-based Macs).
SOHO Organizer makes managing customer relationships from phone calls and notes to appointments and to-dos easy. It embraces and leverages popular Mac OS X technologies and applications instead of trying to replace them. For example, it synchronizes seamlessly with the Address Book and iCal so that users can continue to use them and other applications that rely on their data. Users can thus use Apple's iSync to synchronize their contacts and calendars in SOHO Organizer to cell phones, iPods, Palm handhelds, and even .Mac.
SubEthaEdit is a powerful and lean text editor. And it's the only collaborative one you can actually use. By combining the ease of Bonjour with the world's best text collaboration engine, it makes working together not only possible but even fun.
tcpflow is a program that captures data transmitted as part of TCP connections (flows), and stores the data in a way that is convenient for protocol analysis or debugging. A program like 'tcpdump' shows a summary of packets seen on the wire, but usually doesn't store the data that's actually being transmitted. In contrast, tcpflow reconstructs the actual data streams and stores each flow in a separate file for later analysis.
Wireshark is the world's most popular network protocol analyzer. It is used for troubleshooting, analysis, development, and education.
A very long list of uses for XNmap could be compiled, but we'll just list off a few here:
- Network Audits
- Security Audits
- Rogue Machine Discovery
- Backdoor Discovery
- Operating System Patch-level Audits
Since XNmap provides a GUI for nmap, it can do everything that nmap can do. According to the nmap web site:
Nmap ("Network Mapper") is a free open source utility for network exploration or security auditing. It was designed to rapidly scan large networks, although it works fine against single hosts. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics.
