These lines are thought to provide a clear and efficent integration among different eBox modules. Therefore, it gives an efficent and orthogonal way to work. Here some topics will be listed in order to leave ideas of possible eBox modules integrations.
Configured DNS and Gateways overwritten by DHCP
Configured DNS and Gateways addresses are overwritten by the last DHCP address. We must fix this behaviour (see #498)
Currently, in TCP/IP stack a machine is likely to have the following attributes:
|Physical Address (MAC)||DHCP|
|Logical Address (IP)||DHCP - DNS - Objects|
|Human Readable Address (Name)||DNS|
|Application Level -> Grouping||DNS - Objects|
A cute integration of all of this could be great.
Automatical object creation
The addresses of the eBox machine could be used to create one (or more) objects. For instance, when a remote IP printer is configured, it could be automatically create a network-object with the printer as a member.
Mail Virtual Domains and DNS
DNS provide MX records to allow MTA sends mails to the proper destination through its DNS usage. It could be great to allow at the creation of a DNS domain, set a mail virtual domain just setting a tick there.
HTTP proxy and users
As printers, file sharing and mail allows, support users and groups integration at HTTP proxy to provide rules per user. It brings different problems such as objects integration and rule application. (this is in the roadmap for 0.13)
