About the Project
The Outernet Project is a community driven project to create a Linux distribution that links many digital modes of amateur radio. The server software seamlessly links packet radio, high speed multimedia networks to one another using the internet as a backbone.
The Outernet server software acts as a central server for High Speed Multimedia networks that utilize TCP/IP such as 802.11 and D-Star "DD" mode. Future releases will also support the server running as a packet radio or AX.25 node with worldwide networking using AX.25 in IP encapsulation.
