the objective is to centralize the administration of iptables and snort by one single interface.
Through this interface, I should be able to administrate any snort and iptables installed on a PC in the LAN, and centralize the log of iptables and snort to one single DataBase Server
and then  be able to correlate their log to identify if there is a potential attack, a rule is set on the firewall automatically.
(I know that I need to install webmin and the requested modules on the PCs on the LAN in order to make RPC calls)
thx a lot

  Could you give us some idea of what the overall objective of your module is?
  I can then perhaps suggest the best functions to use..

  Hi,
  I'm trying to make a button to show the hosts on which the user the configs
  to be installed like the button
  install  on  in  the  cluster  software  module.  I found the function
  create_on_input but it shows a void list ine the browser.
  Can u help me on this please or give a more detailed documentation on the
  cluster functions.
  THX a lot :)

      You could write your own module to do this, but it would be a fair bit
    of
      work. It may be simpler to just login to Webmin on the remote systems
    and
      manage them separately, if you want them to all have different configs..

    I'm trying to configure remotely the snort IDS, edit its config, start a

    ANd do the same thing with the firewall iptables. I found the firewall

    servers configured in the cluster, but I want to have the ability to
  choose
    which one is concerned by this config. Another problem is that the config
    displayed in the index of the firewall module is the one of the master,
  but
    I want to choose which host to display its config.
    Is it doable?
