* Configure the default gateway and gateway device.
* Configure host and domain names.
* Add/remove DNS servers (/etc/resolv.conf).
* Add/Remove known Hosts (/etc/hosts).
KNetworkConf works now in 13 different platforms:
* BlackPanther OS

* Debian Linux
* Fedora Linux
* Gentoo Linux

KNetworkConf uses the Gnome System Tools (gst) (http://www.gnome.org/projects/gst/) network backend to find out the network values in a platform-independient manner. This backends are a bunch of perl scripts that use XML files to communicate with different frontends.
NOTE:You don't need to have GNOME nor GST installed AT ALL to run KNetworkConf. The network backend comes included.
