Need Security – Got Frenzy ??

logoFrenzy is a “portable system administrator toolkit,” LiveCD based on FreeBSD. It generally contains software for hardware tests, file system check, security check and network setup and analysis. Size of ISO-image is 200 MBytes (3″ CD). Current version of Frenzy is based on FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE. Compressed file system (geom_ugz) used, so there is almost 600 MB of data on 200 MB CD. Loading speed also improved.

When Frenzy boots, it creates required memory disks, automatically detects and mounts HDD partitions (UFS, FAT16/32, NTFS, EXT2FS are supported). It also mounts FreeBSD swap space as Frenzy swap, if found. If you wish you can create a swap file on mounted partitions. There is also an automatical mouse type detection (PS/2, serial, USB).

There are almost 400 applications in Frenzy 0.3:

* C and nasm compilers, Perl and Python interpreters
* File managers: deco, mc, xnc
* Text editors (among them joe, ViM and AbiWord)
* Viewers and convertors of text files, logfile analyzers
* Archivers, system and file utilities
* File recovery utilities
* Tools for HDD
* Hardware information and setup
* Benchmarks and hardware testing utilities
* Antiviruses (clamav, drweb) and rootkit detection utilities
* Password and crypto tools
* Network tools (LAN, modem, dial-up, VPN, Wireless)
* Web-browsers, main and news clients, ICQ and IRC clients
* Network calculation tools
* Traffic monitors
* Proxy, redirect
* Remote control (telnet, ssh, RDP, VNC)
* MySQL and PostgreSQL clients
* Samba server and clients
* Tools for DNS, LDAP, SNMP, DHCP, ICMP, ARP, IP packets
* Port scanners, network scanners, service detection tools
* Security scanners, sniffers, intrusion detection tools
* Picture viewer (gqview), DjVu, CHM, PDF-viewers
* Video player (MPlayer)

X Window system doesn’t start automatically. When XFree86 is first started by using of ‘startx’ script, video hardware autodetecting will begin. But you may run the detection script manually, if you expect some troubles with it. Default window manager is fluxbox. X Window also contains TTF-fonts.

There are some dialog scripts for LAN (static-IP and DHCP) and PPP (dialup) setup. You can easily backup system settings to a floppy, USB Flash or hard disk and restore them automatically when Frenzy starts.
