Requires OES or NetWare
I prefer to administer my OES and NetWare servers from an OS X client, but iManager, SSH, X-Windows, and RconsoleJ can only take you so far. If you wanted to use the DNS / DHCP Console (which is more reliable than iManager for DNS and DHCP), you had to use a Windows or Linux client.
Then, two years ago, junaid_s84 posted a way of running the Novell DNS / DHCP Console on OS X. Unfortunately, that solution did not allow the use of SSL, and it required you to start the application with a script. That original post can be found at http://www.novell.com/communities/node/9176/dns-dhcp-management-console-apple-macintosh
We now have a solution that offers the following advantages:
1. It allows SSL.
2. It behaves like a real OS X application bundle.
3. It uses the version of the Console included with OES 2 sp3.
In order to create this application bundle, we did have to modify the code a little bit, and you will have to run a script once to correctly set environmental variables for the application. For details, please see the README.TXT included in the zip file.
Once you are done, you will be able to use the DNS/DHCP Console exactly as if you were running it on Windows or Linux, except with all the Aqua-goodness of OS X!
