Web interface for Vacation?

Does anyone know if there is a web interface available for the Vacation auto responder program that is part of Linux?

The whole process of logging on to an SSH session and performing the necessary commands for most of my users who are accustom to working in Windows would be a bit much I am afraid.

I found a project that does allow a web interface to the vacation program. The webmin project,, provides this.

To allow your users to update their own vacation information you need to also install the usermin program and the usermin vacation module.

I also installed a vacation module in the Webmin application so that managers can enter a vaction message for employees that are sick.

This application also gives windows users a web interface that can be used to change their password on the Linux server.

I spent a lot of time searching for this, so hopefully this message will be indexed to make it easier on the next person who needs these abilities will be able to find it faster than I did.
