I have given up on dialup-admin for now. It seemed broken when 
I tested the version that comes with 1.1.1, and there are parts 
that need too much work for what I want. I also don't like the
php3 extensions since it is in php4 and have been unable to 
have those and some other changes accepted in CVS. I have not 
fully read the licence dialup-admin uses so I decided to start
from scratch without referencing it at all.

Unfortunately I haven't had any time to continue with this 
project lately, and you are the first one to respond to me about 
it. I have a Cisco NetFlow analyzer and traffic accounting system 
that I need to write as well. I am also considering using C
and the wxWidget cross platform libraries to design a more 
comprehensive Integrated Management System, but I will need 
to learn how to build a GUI app first. So far I have only built
console and web based GUI apps, but PHP and Java may not work
for the end project.

I will need hierarchal administration and access control for 
my implementation. The system will also need the ability to search 
for related accounts and quickly navigate between them, and produce
reports and audit trails. Since I have experience accessing 
PostgreSQL in C and have some libraries I built for our current
system, it may not be overly difficult to build a proper 
cross platform GUI interface. I have Windows, Linux, FreeBSD 
as well as PPC and Intel Macs with OS9 and OS X in our office 
now and have had a similar variety in the past, which is why 
I had been using web based GUI projects in the past, but I 
recently cam across a tutorial for wxWidgets.

I got a ton of stuff to do today, see you later.
