There's loads of UI guys on the Open mailing list that'd look over it for us
and make recommendations, but tbh if we based the look and feel on Plesk we
couldn't go far wrong. If all came to all and we needed a UI guy to do some
real work on it, I'd be happy to front up a few quid towards it.
RE your other post, although it would be nice to aim for something
full-featured in the long term, what I'm thinking /right now/ is:
Single-machine firewall, primarily aimed at dedicated servers. I wouldn't
want to set my sights too high and bog the project down from the outset.
That being said, although the Plesk configurator is set up by default with
web server-type defaults (HTTP, HTTPS, POP3, IMAP, etc), it seems to me that
it would be quite easy to change that default for a workstation or more
The port-mapping thing should be pretty easy anyway, most of them are
contained in /etc/services, most commented with Real World descriptions.
Looking at mine, BitTorrent isn't there, but that's mostly a desktop app
Here's the Plesk demo btw, login with admin:plesk, then click on Modules and
Be interested to hear feedback on it. Let's keep discussion here for a
couple days, see who else shows an interest.
