Request for advice: tools
From: Ben Browning <benb () theriver com>

Greetings, all.

I am looking to implement a few tools to make my life easier. I can't seem to find any good ones pre-written although I know they must exist, so I am toying with writing my own. I would love it if any of you would have any info or handy hyperlinks to help me find tools to perform the following functions.

-A DNS zone file editor. It must be CGI, allow for forward and reverse entries, and able to handle odd mappings (IE IN MX 32 mail.foo.bar, etc).

-A Cisco config builder. Preferably in CGI, but command line would be acceptable as well. Basically something that allows me to make changes in routers and either mirror them on a lot of other routers, as well as displaying stats and other things in a pointy-haired-boss-friendly manner.

-Any kind of scripts designed with the abuse administrator in mind- IE log parsers, Code Red automailers/procmail scripts, etc etc.

All of these tools would be preferred in a GNU or freeware form, but I am interested in all valid options.

Thanks in advance for your time.
