Features - Managing Services

Once you're satisfied with your installed software, hop on over to the System tab (Figure 3). From there, you manage basic system information such as the date and time, add and delete users, and decide which services are you want running.

Again, very well designed and easy to use. Also from the System tab, you can access your ClarkConnect box using a command line access tool (Figure 4), just in case you get bored.

From the Software tab, you can configure the various services available. The web interface presents a very simplified means of controlling what can be some very complicated software.

Tip TIP: This page provides information on all of ClarkConnect's modules (services). Each module description includes a link to the open source project it is based on.

For instance, the Samba fileserver (for SMB-based file sharing) has more configuration options than I care to count, but the ClarkConnect interface for it is very simple and straightforward (Figure 5).

Of course, this simplification means that you won't have access to all of a programs functions through the web interface, but for a large percentage of users, what can be configured via this interface will be more than enough.
