    Command line to start control panel?


    Hi all,

    I am new to Linux and starting to use Rdd Hat ES 5. I was wondering if there is a command in Red Hat to lauch a control panel similar to yast2 on SuSE Linux.

    I know I can using the GUI in Red Hat, however, if I ssh into a Red Hat system from another machine this isn't possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    What kind of control panel are you trying to launch? As far as I know, there is no all-in-one control panel like YaST in Redhat Enterprise.

    Sorry, I should be more specific:

    I'm trying to launch the Network control panel, to configure the IP addresses etc. I know I can use ifconfig to configure IP addresses, but it would be better to get the GUI based Network control panel.

    Thanks!

    I don't know the name of the GUI panel for that but I believe the text-based version is system-config-network.
