# The Web Interface
The IPFire Web User Interface (also called web interface or webUI) is a frontend to configure IPFire. It provides an easy way to access all settings, install and configure add-ons and view logs as well as graphical reports.
The first step to start configuring IPFire is to [login to the web user interface](./login).
The web user interface is split into areas of configuration, status and logs.
## System menu
The [](./system) menu includes basic settings of the operating system.
## Status menu
The [](configuration/status) menu includes graphs and status reports on various parts of the system.
## Network menu
The [](/configuration/network) menu includes all settings for the network, options to configure the Advanced Proxy and other tools with an easy to use graphical user interface.
