I am building a simple linux appliance to run some specialized software. I do not want the end user to "easily" be able to login to the console of the Ubuntu server.
I need a an application that starts immediately before the console logon prompt is displayed. The application is a text UI that is menu based and only allows the user to do the following:
Change the server hostname
Select whether the server uses DHCP or static IP addressing
If static is selected, it allows the user to enter an IP address, subnet mask, gateway and 2 DNS servers
Reboot the server
Shutdown the server
go to console logon
The application should require as few additional aoftware modules as possible to reduce the number of updates required.
