Hi Webmin users,
Cloudmin is a commercial product based on Webmin for managing
virtual machines (like Xen, KVM or OpenVZ instances) that we've
been working on for a while now. Up till now it has been only
available in a paid version.
However, I've just started the process of releasing a free version
that is limited to managing Xen instances on a single host. This
is useful if you want to start playing with virtualization, or
get a feel for what Cloudmin does.
For information on this new GPL version, see :
To download the install scripts (for CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu), see :
These scripts are still very new, so please let me know of any
problems you run into. I recommend running them on a freshly installed
system where possible, although they will still work on a machine
with Webmin or Virtualmin installed.
One of our student interns is writing webmin module designed to address
specific needs we have and I was wondering if there is enough interest in it
to release it under open source license.
Module is designed to put DHCP hosts infected with malware (or exhibiting
otherwise prohibited behavior) into "darknet" using dhcp reservations.
Right now, it's working by looking into periodically saved lease files from
2 DHCP servers, matching time of the offense with active leases and
"capturing" (or "releasing already captured MAC addresses) into "bad hosts"
file that gets included into dchpd.conf on each of those two DHCP servers.
I'm guessing a lot of colleges using similar method to take offending PCs
off public network. If there is enough interest, we can release the code and
try to make module as abstract and configurable as possible.
Also, any suggestions under which open source license to release it? GPL2,
GPL3, BSD, Apache?
