Dante is a circuit-level firewall and proxy that can be used to provide convenient and secure network connectivity to a wide range of hosts while requiring only the server Dante runs on to have external network connectivity.
Once installed, Dante can in most cases be made transparent to the clients while offering detailed access control and logging facilities to the server administrator.
Developed by Inferno Nettverk A/S, Dante usually comes installed as part of a bigger Inferno Nettverk firewall system. Inferno Nettverk has however decided to also offer it separately available via FTP. The Dante version provided via FTP is under a BSD/CMU-type license and comes with complete source code, for your convenience and verification.
Inferno Nettverk also provides commercial services related to Dante. These services include support, customised installations/tuning of Dante, development, porting and embedding.
