    I think it is system-config-users. If you are ssh'ing into the box you will need to use the -X option with the ssh command from another computer running X.

    If you are running remotely, why not use the command line based tools? It is much quicker, and you can do everything you need with them:

    useradd, usermod, userdel, groupadd, groupdel, groupmod

    and of course, if you are in a bind and are feeling brave, you can edit /etc/passwd and /etc/group manually. only do that if you know what you are doing, though.

    That would probably be the most efficient method for remote user management.
