FREESCOsoft contains an all-in-one listing of the packages that are available to the world of FREESCO. Now that you have your FREESCO box 'up and running' and installed onto the hard drive, you are probably asking yourself, "What now?" "What about all of the idle time?" "What about the unused hard drive space?" Well, FREESCOsoft, possibly the most comprehensive FREESCO package repository available on the web, helps to meet the demand for add-on packages for the FREESCO operating system.
While FREESCO is based on the Linux operating system and incorporates many of the features of other Linux distributions, into a software package that fits onto a single 1.44 meg floppy diskette. It is the extreme flexibility and versatility of FREESCO, that has spawned the demand for package add-ons since version 0.2.7.
If you are looking to enhance your FREESCO experience by expanding the functionality of your FREESCO box? You have come to the right place.
These pages contain a good overview of each of the packages including install links locations. FREESCOsoft also keeps a package mirror and tries to keep it updated weekly or better. Always check the FREESCO Forum and/or the pkglist on the authors site for updates.
This mirror is offered in hopes that it can be of use to authors that are on a slower home connection, like I have confused , but do not have access to a faster internet host for their packages, like I have. Also, of course, to all the FREESCO users who could benefit from a mirror of all of the packages. But, like it would be expected, I am limited in all respects. Please use the mirror if it will decrease the download time, but please do not abuse it. Thanks.
I have nothing but great expectations for FREESCO in the future, while currently awaiting the new version to be released. The FREESCO Team and all of the members on the Official FREESCO Forum are to thank for most of this site, without their combined knowledge (or typing of it) and their packages, this site would be empty.
Well, FREESCO has released its newest series, the 0.4.x series. As far as the packages are concerned for this series, it got a bit easier, and a lot easier. The most noticeable when dealing with the packages themselves, is that the 0.4.x series uses a single package file, which is a large improvement over the older 0.3.x series and one that is much liked by FREESCOsoft. The process, inside of FREESCO, for finding/installing a package has also improved a great deal over the previous 0.3.x series. I will not go into the process here, but it is a lot easier and is a great improvement.
Project Description :
FREESCO was developed in the open source tradition as an alternative to routing products offered by Cisco, 3-Com, Accend, Nortel etc. While all of these companies offer products that are well made, the overhead and overall costs can be expensive.
FREESCO is open source, stable, inexpensive, easy to use, extremely versatile and flexible ... and best of all, FREESCO is FREE.
Ok here are a couple situations ...
While working on your local FREESCO router, or out working on a clients server (that is not so local), this application could save you some time (if not a headache or two), by being able to access and then download the newest FREESCO version, or that patch that you missed earlier.
While out making the rounds to client locations, checking a system and wondering about the changes made to the latest version and if it now includes that wanted feature, go have a look. All of the websites information is right here, in a quick and easy application.
