Why do you want that software specifically? Lots of other packages can offer similar functionality.

Unfortunately I have never used this software, but I find webmin a much more comprehensive web based administration tool for unix/linux, it maybe worth looking into.

Webmin will be the most apropriate. Its open source and has a lot of flexibility. Give it a spin.

Also, webmin has a cooler look =)

Webmin is used to administer your unix severs or workstations. You can configure and maintain all your servers from the one computer by clustering webmin, or you can access all the servers individually, you can do all this from a web-based user interface,

For more information check out their website

www.webmin.com

thanks fotoguy

but guys unitl now i did not get what i want

wich i want exactly is to know somthing about webmin

I use the program wich in the pic for somthing
it manager the Internet connection for a network

for example i have a cofe shop wich has about 20 internet-connected compuers and I make by this software user accounts and passwords for every pc so that i can manage the internet connections for them and I also have near homes who got the internet service from me , so i make a new user name and password for every one so when someone didnt pay I cut the internet over him by that software

so if the webmin does this thing .. it could be great and tell me under wich section\option I could find it ...

if it is not soo .. could you help guys to find that software or another one who do the same wich I explained.

You could use a VPN connection and/or a proxy and Webmin together to essentially do the same thing. You give everyone a VPN username and password and they need that to log on and get to the Internet, then the proxy can control where they can go, and bandwidth etc... You could also use freeradius to authenticate users. Webmin offers modules for web based interface administration for all of these I believe. There are other solutions I am sure, but you need to look for them. I have seen threads regarding this sort of thing on here before, some perusing might find you your perfect solution or set you on the path towards it. I suppose none of them are a one stop solution like the one you are looking for, but it's up to you what route you want to go.
