Bug#160516: ITP: masqdialer -- daemon for controlling shared dialup links

Package: wnpp
Version: unavailable; reported 2002-09-11
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : masqdialer
  Version         : 0.5.5
  Upstream Author : Charles P. Wright <cpwright@cpwright.com>
* URL             : http://w3.cpwright.com/mserver/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : daemon for controlling shared dialup links

The masqdialer system is designed to provide easily accessible control of
multiple dialout modem connections to the members of a LAN using IP
Masquerade for their internet connectivity.
The system is a client/server design, so as long as a client can be written
for a particular platform, that platform can take advantage of masqdialer's
offerings. The masqdialer daemon runs on the linux machine, and upon an
authorized client request, carries out the user's request.

This is a repackage of the masqdialer package that existed in slink, which
has since been removed from the archive.  The upstream author has announced
that he hasn't got the time to work on this software, but I'm interested in
keeping it running on my network at home.

The upstream tarball is called c-mserver, and the package refers to itself
as ``mserver'', which conflicts with the currently orphaned mserver package.
I intend to keep this package as ``masqdialer'', as it's a clearer name.
