LEAF Bering-uClibc is the successor of the Bering distribution. Replacing glibc with uClibc a significantly smaller distribution is possible. All packages are ipv6-ready and based on the latest sources. It also provides a new and enhanced package management.
LEAF Bering-uClibc is available for download as a single-floppy-based firewall or as an ISO-image. Additionally booting from HD, CF or an USB device is supported.
The floppy image supports dhcp, ppp and pppoe connections out of the box and fits for a SOHO network demanding a stable and secure router/Internet connection. Secure remote administration is available with dropbear, a small sshd replacement.
Using the ISO image, or an USB/CF/HD boot device, you can add about 150 packages to extend LEAF Bering-uClibc with capabilities like SNMP, 6wall (an shorewall-like IPV6 firewall setup utility), VPN, Intrusion Detection, Traffic Accounting, Quagga Routing Suite, bandwith management and wireless connections, just to name a few.
- The upstream versions were updated.
- New features were added, like multilink PPP support and IMQ patches.
- More work was done on the Web-based configuration.
