NOSintro This extensive guide covers TCP/IP over packet radio as an introduction to the KA9Q network operating system (22 MB PDF) - AMPRNet dynamic IPIP encapsulation routing daemon by K2MF & VK2KTJ (1999). Clients each request their routing when they become active... similar to dhcp.




(The AMPR central DNS and core routers are maintained by Brian Kantor, WB6CYT)
(3rd party consumer router firmware that will pass IPIP?)
(Linux compatible with rip44d)
(tutorial on the ip command, this will setup the tunnel and routes)
(tutorial on the iptables command, this configures the firewall) - ntop is a network probe that shows network usage in a way similar to what top does for processes. In Web mode, it acts as a web server, creating a HTML dump of the network status.

OpenNHRP implements NBMA Next Hop Resolution Protocol (as defined in RFC 2332). It makes it possible to create dynamic multipoint VPN Linux router using NHRP, GRE and IPsec. It aims to be Cisco Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN) compatible. - A Link to the official full list of all registered ampr hosts, updated daily in and domain.txt format - List of AMPRNet IP address coordinators
