Hmm, two of those icons certainly appear to be derived from Bluecurve
(the computer towers, look like the bluecurve ones) but the laptop,
brick wall, full system, etc. I've never seen before.
Andy cleaned up a bunch of the Bluecurve icon sheets a while back,
converting them to SVG and making it so that they'll open up in
Inkscape. You might find them useful - they're available at:
If there are any things you really need that you can't find on the
sheets (I suspect the brick wall might be one of them?) let us know. I
would certainly be willing to whip together some icons to fill the gaps.
Another option you have is to use the networking icons included with
dia. They're stored as .shape files under /usr/share/dia, but if you
open them up in dia and export as SVG you'll get SVGs. They're not as
nice-looking as the Bluecurve icons, though.
