GUI based network configuration tools!!!


I am wondering whether there are any GUI based configuration tools in Linux for configuring DNS, DNCP and other network related problems similar to that of Windows?

If you didnt see it before Webmin is a great tool for Web - based system managemnet[almost graphical].
Freely downloadable at webmin site.


And most of the linux distro have a graphical management tool for network management.

I use red - hat and it has got redhat-configure-network,named etc.

Cheers

Yah, I also use Red Hat 9, with ‘
Code:
redhat-configure-network’
command you can invoke GUI, which solve only few problem not which I am looking for. I want some bigger tools for BIND or for DHCP server configuration or Mail server configuration, like Windows 2000 server provides (which has all DHCP, DNS and Users configurations all GUI

Then you download and install webmin on your system.

Its available at http://www.webmin.com

A very useful tool which has all the faetures you need and for all services DNS,DHCP,

samba,squid,etc...


Give it a try



Also for Dns & bind configuration in redhat its

redhat-config-bind

not redhat-config-network


Cheers
