|Modem Sharing mini-HOWTO|
Since the first release of this document in June 1997 I have received many email messages related to the subject. In most of the messages people were seeking more help to get the modem sharing configured and running.
Recently I received an interesting feedback from Karsten.Hilbert@gmx.net. Karsten pointed out that although DialOut/IP may be a good client program he'd like to have a GPL'ed client. Karsten mentioned the Software Bazaar <http://visar.csustan.edu/bazaar/> and he volunteered to put in an offer. Here is what Karsen wrote:

The howto mentions DialOut/IP as a good tool to connect Windows clients to a linux server sharing a modem. I agree. However, it would be more attractive to have a free, GPL'ed client, wouldn't it ? This I thought and decided to offer some money for the implementation of such a client on the Software Bazaar. If someone grabs the project I will pay him a certain amount of money if it is completed and functional. After that the client would be GPL'ed. Now, I can only offer so much money :) But other people could join in and offer some, too, thus increasing the incentive. Wouldn't your howto be a perfect place to mention this possibility ? The Bazaar can be found at: http://visar.csustan.edu/bazaar/ Thought I could mention this to you. Karsten
