A package was submitted to
This mail was sent to address@hidden, address@hidden

Thomas Sarlandie <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: gpl
Other License: 
Package: vNET Project
System name: vnet
This package does NOT want to apply for inclusion in the GNU project

vNET stands for Visual Network Exploration Tool. 

It is a two part project which allows the user to view is network in 3 
dimension. The first part is called : \"probe\" and is a daemon launched on a 
UN*X box. We currently support FreeBSD and GNU/Linux. 

The probe\'s job is to handle requests from the client, and to do stuff like 
pingsweeping, tracerouting, portscanning, fingerprinting, etc. It must be run 
as root in order to do raw packet handling.The second part is called : 
\"client\" and is a SDL/OpenGL program that connects to one or more probes and 
renders the network as seen by the probe. It currently runs on GNU/Linux (main 
developpment platform), Win32, and FreeBSD. 
The user can click on a network, a host, etc to see its properties or to ask 
the probe to get more information.

Communication between probe and client is currently done either in clear TCP or 
using openssl. 

We have been working on that project since the beginning of the year as a 
school-project. We have received authorization to distribute the project under 
the GPL License. 

As asked by Loic Dachary, I am resubmitting the project with a link to a 
tarball :

We are currently working hard on it, and even if it should build well (provided 
you have needed libs),  you may find some bugs ... but release early, release 
(Note: I have removed most textures, and models to reduce the tarball size => 
the client won\'t work).

If you have trouble building the stuff, you can mail me (address@hidden). I 
recommend using g++-3.1 to build this project.

Other Software Required:
We depend on a few libraries : OpenGL, SDL, zlib, OpenSSL (optionnal), Perl5
