Overview
FREESCO (stands for FREE ciSCO) is a free replacement for commercial routers supporting up to 3 ethernet/arcnet/tokenring/arlan network cards and up to 2 modems.
Why should you use Freesco?
  • Ease of use - it's insanely easy to set up
  • Thoroughly documented - it's more or less self contained, read one doc and you're off and running
  • Like most players in this field, it runs off one floppy
  • FreeSco runs in as little as 6 Mb RAM.
  • Unique Web Control Panel
Freesco is the easiest to use, one disk Linux system available. For more, read the full overview.
