The Major Software Packages available via anonymous ftp from the Network Research Group at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory

Unless otherwise noted, the latest version of each package is named <package>.tar.Z (a compressed tarchive) and is found in the top level directory of the host ( Don't forget to set binary mode before retrieving. For each package, send bug reports and questions to <package>
