Overview

The Men & Mice Web Interface allows you to perform various operations from your web browser. 
To install the Men & Mice Web Interface, refer to the Installation Guide.


The Men & Mice Web Interface consists of several modules, each accessed from a separate tab.

  • Advanced Zone View. The Advanced Zone View allows you to perform basic zone management using your web browser. Using Advanced Zone View, you can perform basic DNS tasks from any workstation.
  • Basic Zone View. The Basic Zone View contains a simplified web based interface for working with zone information. Using this interface, users with minimal DNS knowledge can make changes to zones in a quick and efficient manner. Users are only allowed to view and work with the information that they have permission to work with.
  • IP Address Management. The IP Address Management module allows users with sufficient privileges to access the IP Address Ranges that have been assigned to them. Users can add a new host to any address in the range, or edit the properties of an existing host assignment. If the range is a part of a DHCP scope, users can work with reservations within the scope.
  • Reports. The Report Module allows users with sufficient privileges to generate various reports in the Men & Mice Suite. After running the reports, the results can be displayed in a separate browser window. It is also possible to display the results in an Excel sheet if using Internet Explorer. To enable this feature, the website for the Men & Mice Web interface must be added to the list of trusted sites from within Internet Explorer:
  1. Choose Tools, Internet Options. A dialog box displays
  2. Click the Security tab and click Trusted Sites.
  3. Click the Sites button and add the website to the zone.

After adding the website, the Export to Excel button becomes available after running the report. Clicking this button displays the report in an Excel sheet.
