    I read earlier in the Forum that ISPConfig 3 doesn't has a remote framework implemented yet. But as I download it today, to start developing, I see that there is a folder called "remoting_client" with a php file in it, which is a soap client to connect to ISPConfig.

    So my question is, did you implement a remote framework in the stabil ISPConfig 3?

    How fare is the Remote Framework already?

    I have coded now some ISPConfig Email features(Autorepsonder, Password Changer) in the Roundcube Mail 0.2.1 and I would extend(Forwarding,Mail Filter, etc.) them and change them to use the Remote Framework.

    PS: I would love to offer a Roundcube Package for ISPConfig 3.

    I will need the remote framework as well.
    Is it going to be Soap ?
    Will REST be implemented as well ?

    The remoting framework uses soap.

    i did some investigation in the code, especially
    * /usr/share/ispconfig/remoting_client/example.php
    * /usr/share/ispconfig/interface/lib/classes/
    * /usr/share/ispconfig/interface/web/login/index.php

    at first i tried to alter example.php according to my needs (user, pwd, server-uri), but it didnt work. i got: "SOAP Error: The login failed. Username or password wrong."

    so i took a look into and found something i dont understand. the script tries to find the user/pwd in the database-table "remote_user" - which is empty on my setup. after adding a dummy-user with md5(pwd) the example.php-script told me that logging in and logging out was successfully. so i consider the "soap-part" is working properly.

    the next step ill do is, to make look for the user/pwd in the database-table "sys_user". when a user/pwd is found ill create a session just like its done in /web/login/index.php.

    maybe im on the very wrong way, but I really dont have any clue whats that "remote_user"-table about - so any hint or some suggestions from the devs would be very nice :)

    best regards

    The remote user table is needed to authenticate a user for a remoting session, otherwise everone would be able to reconfigure your server over the internet without having to provide a username and password.

    The sys_user table is not used by the remoting framework and shall not be used as normal users shall never get access to the remoting functions. The remoting functions are a low level api that dont care about the user permisions in sys_user, a remoting user has the same permissions then a admin user.
