Here are some small and very useful bash scripts that I have written and I use them from WebMin to perform some small tasks. These Include

  • Adding a user in PPP -> Secrets
  • Deleting a user in PPP -> Secrets
  • Editing user credentials (such as ID, Password, Profile, MAC-Address, etc...) in PPP -> Secrets
  • Disable a user in PPP -> Secrets
