Console Administration Tool

Hi everybody,
I know this question has been asked before and the general answer was that there is no console-admin tool "like yast", but I know that there was a tool showing a basic menu to set up Authorization, Netwworking, X Server ... because it showed up the first time I booted my freshly installed fedora 9. I come from ubuntu/SuSe land and I am quite a fedora newbie, and I tried everything I could think of to re-access this tool. Can anyone here give me a hint,
thank you all in advance,
jonjo

Can't remember if all text versions are installed by default, but you can check that by searching '-tui' with Yum.

Text-based network configuration is for example /usr/sbin/system-config-network-tui and firewall is /usr/sbin/system-config-firewall-tui

No there is fortunately no monolith app like Yast on RedHat like systems.
I worked for years with SuSE and Yast. As my employer did buy RedHat it was one of the best things (expect from yum) to get more usable tools then Yast for administration.

In a terminal you can type: system-config [Tab] [Tab] and you will see all the amin tools. They are all in the menu as well.

But pleas save my from Yast!

Thank you for your help. I also wanted to get rid of yast, guess why I deleted SuSe :-)
The problem is, I need to administer the server via ssh, so system-config-* doesn't work.
Regards,
Jonjo

Ah ok.
Those 'tui' tools were exactly what I was looking for.
Thank you so much for your (amazingly quick) help!
You made my day!

Jonjo

Of course do they work! Some are text bested. But if X is installed on the server. (only installed, not running!) You can open all X-Application over ssh by using the -X option:

-X is obsolete. Use -Y instead.

OK, thank! I allways used -X good to know:

Quote:
-X
Enables X11 forwarding. This can also be specified on a per-host basis in a
configuration file.

X11 forwarding should be enabled with caution. Users with the ability to
bypass file permissions on the remote host (for the user’s X authorization
database) can access the local X11 display through the forwarded connection.
An attacker may then be able to perform activities such as keystroke monitor-
ing.

For this reason, X11 forwarding is subjected to X11 SECURITY extension
restrictions by default. Please refer to the ssh -Y option and the
ForwardX11Trusted directive in ssh_config(5) for more information.
-Y
Enables trusted X11 forwarding. Trusted X11 forwardings are not subjected to
the X11 SECURITY extension controls.
