In version 9.1 of the Men & Mice Suite, a new Web Application for the Men & Mice Suite was introduced. This first version of the new web application has basic DNS and DHCP management functionality. In an upcoming version 9.2 of the Men & Mice Suite the goal is to expand on the DNS and DHCP functionality and add new features which are not present in the current web interface or the Windows client (The Men & Mice Management Console).
The new web application is split into two main sections: DNS and Networks. Additionally the new reporting feature is accessible in a specific section called Reporting.
From the DNS section, it is possible to do the following
- Create new DNS zones (limited to master and slave zones in the first version)
- Manage the DNS records within the DNS zones
From the Network section, it is possible to do the following
- Create a new network range or a DHCP scope
- Manage the the IP addresses within a network or a DHCP scope
- Create DHCP reservations
- View related DNS data for IP addresses within a network
- Add DNS hosts for IP addresses
For a general introduction of the web interface, see General. Several features are used throughout the user interface, such as The Inspector, the Filtering sidebar and the Quick command feature. The three main sections of the web application are DNS management, Network management and Reports management.
