This page features a couple of event-driven servers,
a modular authentication system and other stuff that may or may
not prove useful to you.
The software should compile out of the box for recent versions
of MacOS, Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, DragonFly BSD, Solaris and,
in a somewhat degraded mode, Windows (via Cygwin).
The source archive includes the documentation in PDF, HTML and plain text format.
is a broker with load-balancing functionality that listens for incoming
connections on IP, UNIX or possibly IPv6 sockets, accepts them and
finally forwards them (using ancillary messages over UNIX domain sockets)
to the spawned server processes.

IPv6 support, and much more.
implement the modular authentication sub-system used by ftpd and tac_plus.

... is essential for fixing bugs and adding features. If you've
trouble using the software, just drop me a mail via the Event-Driven Servers Google group. That group is moderated, first-time posters will need my approval. Don't send your mail more than once (I have absolutely no issues with approving re-sends to make you look dumb, so just don't do it). Your mail will show up, most certainly, sooner or later.
There is no private support. At all. Support requests or inquries sent to any of my private email addresses will be silently ignored.
Repeated support requests or inquries sent to any of my private email addresses will cause me to ignore any messages you're sending to the public mailing list, too. Don't try this, there's no way back.
