Hmm.  I'll give this a shot.  Seems like email is one way, here,
but I'll try it anyhow.

FTPD has been written and is fairly complete, but does not presently
     support passive mode.  Licensing is the same as RTEMS.
HTTPD is supported as the GoAhead webserver.  License information 
      is available at
FTP client is not available as part of RTEMS, but isn't difficult to
TelnetD is something I've written, but since RTEMS doesn't really have
        a default shell, it is fairly specific to the application.
To _my_ knowledge, SNMP agent, RIP2, OSPF, NAT are not supported.
DHCP appears to be partially supported.

Porting ANY of these things from an open source should be very easy.
I've found my networking ports to be very clean.
