Windows-to-Linux roadmap: Part 3. Introduction to Webmin
By Chris Walden - 2004-05-24 Page:  1 2 3 4

Summary and Resources

Webmin is a browser-based administration application written in Perl. Webmin is extensible and available for other Unix-like operating systems besides Linux. Once installed, Webmin is accessed through a special port, typically 10000, either locally or from a remote browser. It provides point-and-click interfaces to a variety of Linux administration tasks, including user management, network firewalling, and network device configuration.

Webmin is free to install and use, and is a good way to manage a working Linux environment while you are making a transition from the graphical tools of Windows. Webmin tools are a front end to the console-based tools, so configuration is consistent, and administration can be done from either set of tools safely.
