Butterly Personal Edition is a timing system designed for environments in which time spent on the Internet is charged for. Using Linux ipchains firewalling software Butterfly daemon cooperates with a Windows-based administration interface and a client interface to control time spent when browsing.

Utilising Butterfly uses a combination of techniques (including dynamic TCP/IP firewalling) to control how much time a client can spend browsing the Internet on any workstation.

Main features:

  • Simple usage model: A client pays and is given an 'access code'. To use a workstation, the client enters the access code into the access controller window. The Butterfly backend then starts timing. Money is deducted from the access code until it runs out or the user logs out. Butterfly handles network access control using dynamic firewalling (in case of Linux backend) and/or desktop control.
  • Users can be billed directly for printing
  • Different per-minute rates for different hours of the day, days of the week and/or access type required.
  • Detailed activity logs are maintained.
  • Butterfly comes with a number of standard system reports, but since the database design is relatively simple, you can brew your own at will! You can also arrange for sales reports to be emailed to you at set intervals
  • Real-time monitoring: The Butterfly Administration program allows you to monitor your workstations from a central location, including who is logged on, which stations are inactive or unresponsive, etc..
  • Prepaid as well as postpaid billing.
  • Butterfly does more!
