CipUX is made up of several parts: on bottom is the LDAP server.
On top of that, the LDAP abstraction layer CipUX::Storage can be found.
The layer for handling generic CipUX objects comes
afterwards: CipUX::Object. On the top the CipUX::Task module delivers
daily administration task functions to different institutions:
(1) The graphical CAT user interface.
(2) The CipUX shell command line, and
(3) the XML-RPC daemon.

CipUX

CipUX is a framework for server administration. With CipUX tools you can solve daily administration tasks easily. There are several layers of tools for users with different skills.

http://source.cipux.org/pix.cipux.org/logo/CipUX-3.2.6_72dpi.png

CipUX is made up of several parts: on bottom is the LDAP server. On top of that, the LDAP abstraction layer CipUX::Storage can be found. The layer for handling generic CipUX objects comes afterwards: CipUX::Object. On the top the CipUX::Task module delivers daily administration task functions to different institutions: (1) The graphical CAT user interface. (2) The CipUX shell command line, and (3) the XML-RPC daemon.
