Introduction :

Venezia is a client for the Charle P. Wright's c-mserver. It was developed using gtk under Linux. The c-mserver enable you to remotely connect the server to the internet, and due to the masquerading makes possible for all the machines on your local net to use this connection. Venezia is a user friendly frontend to that server, designed for end-users on a linux box. It has several possibilities :

  • Handle more than one mserver.
  • Automatic management of locks on connections
  • Informations about available connections.
  • Command launcher.
  • etc...
