Arch Linux provides netcfg for network management. Netcfg supports wired connections on desktops and servers, as well as wireless setups and roaming for mobile users, facilitating easy management of network profiles. NetworkManager and Wicd are popular third-party alternatives.

Programs that conjoin networks, perform authentication, or perform specialized (non end-user) services are usually found in this category.

P2P (Peer-to-Peer) networking, BitTorrent clients, chat clients, and other internet-aware applications are found in category Internet Applications. Programs that serve web pages, email servers, and code repository servers are found in category Web Server. Content Management Systems are listed under Web Server, but they have a large database component as well. Database servers are not categorized as web servers for our purposes; see Database management systems.
