What's RunPON?

RunPON screenshot

RunPON is a Python application useful to establish a network connection calling the pon/poff scripts. It shows the connection time and periodically checks if the network interface is still up.

It can run in a stand-alone window (with a status icon in the tray) or as a Gnome panel applet.

It's still very simple, but I'd like to develop it into a complete program; if you want to help, feel free to contact me.


RunPON is GPLed software. The latest version is 0.4:

It was pointed to me by an insane person that "RunPON" is an anagram of "Nu Porn"; I assume that's a good omen...
