5. Command line usage

The netadm module has its own set of command line options. You can enable command line usage by doing.

        ln -s /bin/linuxconf /bin/netadm

Here are the various command line options

5.1 netadm --help

This presents a screen showing the available options

5.2 netadm --import admin-group

Installs configuration files received from an administration workstation. Those files are stored in /etc/linuxconf/admgroups/"admin-group".

5.3 netadm --remadm [ host ]

This is used for remote administration where you run the GUI front-end on your station, but talk to a Linuxconf on a remote host.

This triggers a menu presenting various hosts for acess.

When specifying an argument (a host name), a remote administration connection is established immediately.

See the section below on setting special accounts to do remote administration.

5.4 netadm (no argument)

This starts the main menu of the module.
