UNIX GUI admin utility - The Moose's Apprentice Apps
i think i saw a link here about this--cant remember [Editor: I thought I remembered it, too, but can't find it anywhere!]. anyways, here's a really cool UNIX admin application i just downloaded. go to: The Moose's Apprentice page and check it out.

i haven't had time to "battle test" it yet, but the documentation is *excellent.* I'll use it tonight to restrict ftp users to their home app like this is precisely what ive been looking for. hope it lives up to its potential.

[Editor's note: Based on a quick five-minute look, this looks like a very impressive application. It gives you a GUI tool to manage many of the low-level UNIX tasks, such as cron jobs, FTP user access, allowed shells, and authorizing services by user and address. Worth a look-see if you're looking for a way of handling some of the UNIX stuff without diving into the terminal. A note of caution, though - this app will let you change things that you may not fully understand! Make sure you have some concept of what you're changing before you start tweaking the settings...]

And the manual alone from the help menu is great, worth the download in itself, as it explains what all chroot, hosts allow etc. etc. mean. Waiting for the update but still brought it, you can see what new functions are coming. But it rocks and even monitors if files have changed.

i have to add that the developer has been really responsive to my questions as well. i highly recommend buying this app if you have your machine connected to (a or the) network full time.

OS X keeps getting better and better by the day.
