We are pleased to announce version 2.3 of The GNU Networking Utilities.

GNU Networking Utilities contain traditional networking utilities,
clients and servers, including ftp, telnet, inetd, rsh/rlogin, tftp,
talk, syslogd, ping, traceroute, whois, hostname, dnsdomainname,
ifconfig, and logger.

Happy hacking,

Here are the compressed sources:   (2.6MB)   (1.5MB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

Here are the SHA1 and SHA256 checksums:

cd728a91f03c5bd3c7a8d210904bb55e315ca0cd  inetutils-2.3.tar.gz
HO2Jn+B8YNaFQdsWhq+ENUAk+lA+FsQ67C7z4DuNRLY  inetutils-2.3.tar.gz
539832b06727d03913f75c12c901d9b22db96cf0  inetutils-2.3.tar.xz
CwG7COKWI8TjuUDyM8lhRR2a+MUGYwGt12pSqV1Rdyw  inetutils-2.3.tar.xz

The SHA256 checksum is base64 encoded, instead of the
hexadecimal encoding that most checksum tools default to.

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify inetutils-2.3.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
or that public key has expired, try the following commands to update
or refresh it, and then rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

  gpg --locate-external-key

  gpg --recv-keys 51722B08FE4745A2

  wget -q -O- 
 | gpg --import -
