    webmin

    I have installed webmin (just to have a look at it). Is webmin a tool that would benefit a single system user I.E. not networked.

    The docs suggest i use 'http://localhost:10000' I tied this but when i go to access a website i get asked for a password and username. I entered my root password but it will not accept it, so i tried my user password and it will not accept that either.

    I went to http://webmin.com and had a at the very extensive documentation. but still dont know how to use this tool.

    My browser usuall points to localhost 5865 for junkbuster.

    Using Libranet 1.9.1
    Cheers

    Hmm...I installed it here myself and was allowe to access it via root/rootpass at http://127.0.0.1:10000. After that I was allowed to add users to it.
    Not sure what's you with yours...perhaps some sort of PAM authentication problem?

    Re:webmin

    O.K. got it working,
    I created a new user (non root). now all i have to do is figure out how to use it :.

    I tried to add my junkbuster proxy 5865 so i would be able to browse with it But i keep getting "file not found errors" Is it possible to browse with webmin, or do i have to keep swapping the proxies I.E. from 10000 while using webmin to 5865 while normaly browsing.

    Another thing is it only has 5 modules, i gather i can add some more ( if i knew what i was doing). But on the whole it looks quite good.

    I had a look at the webmin site and had a look at their documentation ( its VERY extensive), but i was wondering if there was something a bit simpler to explain what webmin does.
    Cheers

    Dude, that was five years ago ....

    Anyway, you can choose to access it via normal http a swell. It's the config file that you have to modify in webmin.conf file. There, you can choose to modify login ID and port number.
