# The Web Interface
The IPFire Web User Interface (also called web interface or webUI or WUI) 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 web user interface is split into areas of configuration, status and logs.
The first step to start configuring IPFire is to [login to the web user interface](./login).
## 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
