A number of free plug-ins by a well know name in the RISC OS scene:
Henrik Bjerregaard Pedersen.
- AVI, FLI, QuickTime, WAV
High quality Commercial plug-ins from Warm Silence Software.
- Sound plug-in
No more silent pages on your RISC OS browser. This plug-in enables
most commonly available audio formats to be played, such as
AIFF, AU, VOC, WAV, WVE and SND. Suitable for both 8-bit and 16-bit
audio systems and tested with Browse, Oregano and Fresco.
- Real audio
- Acorn TCP/IP Stack
From RISC OS 3.70 onward, the Acorn TCP/IP stack is supplied
as standard in the system ROM. Users of older versions of RISC OS
can ask their dealer for a soft-loadable version. The Acorn
TCP/IP stack is a port of the Free BSD Stack and has been proven
to be very fast and reliable.
- FreeNet stack
This is an alternative to the above supplied and maintained by
a group of enhousiasts.
- PPP Client/Server
A very good port of the unix 'pppd' door Sergio Monesi.
Both a DCI-2 (old) and DCI-4 (new) version are available.
The main advantage over Acorn's PPP driver is the ability to
be used not only as Client,
but as Server as well (auto answer).
A very good FTP application. Allows transfer of entire directories
with their contents (multi level). Very robust and much better
and faster than ANT's FTP client.
An IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client for RISC OS.
An ICQ-client for RISC OS.
A port of a Unix LPR client. Allows the use of the LPR protocol
to drive most network printers through a TCP/IP network. Supported

A RISC OS client for Napster, the popular MP3 site.
Software to drive a network printer through the HP JetDirect
protocol. No more wires between your computer and the printer.
No more printer switchers.

for most networks. Currently supported are: Acorn Access, Sun NFS,
Acorn FileServer level 4, LanManager (via NetBeui or TCP/IP).
Optionally available: AppleTalk client.
- NWClient, Novel IPX
Finally braking the Novell barrier; a RISC OS client for
Novel Netware servers running the IPX protocol.
- SMBServer (Samba) version 0.08
