The latest release of NetWare–version 5.1–has a
management tool called the NetWare Web Manager that allows you to manage various
services using a Web browser. These include the NetWare Enterprise Web Server,
News Server, Web Search Server, and Multimedia Server. In addition to this, you
can also manage various aspects of your Novell Directory Services, and also do
cluster management. We’ll discuss how you can set up the Web Manager to do
this.

The NetWare Web Manager automatically gets installed when you
install any of the Web services that we’ve mentioned. To access it, you need
any Web browser that supports Java and JavaScript, like IE 4.x or above, or
Netscape Communicator.

The Web Manager works over a secure link, so when accessing
it, you must use HTTPS instead of the regular HTTP. You must also specify a port
number, which by default is set to 2200.

The main page in Web Manager is the General Administration page. You
can access your NDS tree from here. In the tree, you can go further into
any Organizational unit, create new users, or modify the properties of
existing users

All this makes NetWare servers and resources on them
much easier to manage.

After entering, you have access to a wealth of management information
related to the server–including applications running on it, NDS,
hardware, and health. For example, in Server Management, you can see
various statistics that would otherwise be available only through the
Monitor utility that has to be loaded on the server console. This includes
information related to how the memory is being used, connections, volume
information, etc
