Last modified: 2012-10-30 20:37:24 UTC
In short: Netmagis is a new software (announce follows).
Ports are available for FreeBSD on http://netmagis.org/download.html (development is done with https://github.com/pdav/netmagis/tree/master/pkg/freebsd).
These 8 ports (7 slaves and 1 master) may be added to the FreeBSD ports tree, in the net-mgmt category.
We are proud to announce the release 2.1.0 of Netmagis.
Netmagis (NETwork Management Information System) is a complete
application which aims to simplify operation of a network. Netmagis
is an open-source software.
More specifically, it allows a network administrator to:
- manage IPv4 and IPv6 addresses;
- generate data for a DNS server and get BIND zone files always
up to date and consistant;
- delegate DNS management to other network administrators or
every non-specialist of DNS management;
- specify groups of users and very fine access privileges on
addresses, on domains, etc;
- manage DHCP allocations (both static or dynamic) with profiles
to parametrize network boot;
- use your existing LDAP directory to manage accounts, or manage
accounts with the Netmagis database;
- manage a large number of networks, users domains, DHCP profiles,
- visualize with automatically generated network maps your
network topology (switched or routed);
- give access on these maps to users;
- assign VLAN to equipment interfaces via a simple Web interface
(for Cisco, HP or Juniper equipments);
- delegate VLAN assignment to other network administrators or
every non-specialist of equipment management;
- access to traffic graphs that you have specified on your
- locate hosts by IP address, MAC address or network equipement
Netmagis is available on http://netmagis.org/
FreeBSD ports and Debian/Ubuntu packages are also available on
http://netmagis.org. See installation instructions.

These are complicated and break a few rules, but I'll see what I can do
with them :)
To my shame I've neglected this. I'm really sorry about that.
Are you happy with these changes?
If so, I'll commit them as-is now, they're in much better shape than
before-- well done!
I have some more time currently
This patch makes the ports ready to commit, literally when I get your approval.
I've had to stop building packages for -metro and -www, because the
PostgreSQL dependencies become very complex. Once the default
PostgreSQL version is moved up, we can build packages again, but
they'll always be available from ports.
Is it all OK?
New ports added, with minor changes. Thanks!
