Registration Details

  • Name: NoNet
  • System Name:  nonet
  • Type: non-GNU software and documentation
  • License: Modified BSD License


NoNet is a VERY light and simple tool written in C for banning applications from using network.

The rule is simple: this tool overrides socket related system calls to always return error. This blocks the program from using sockets, the networking base.

But this has few limitations:
 - Programs linked statically against libc
 - Programs that change the environment variable LD_PRELOAD, not caring about its previous value
 - Programs that connect using IPC to another process which does the networking for them

Other Software Required:

glibc LGPL 2.1 http://www.gnu.org/software/glibc

LICENSING: Please note that there is no copyright notice in config.h.in. It is automatically generated by autoheader which puts FSF notice there.
