I need a solution where I can configure a host network settings from a web frontend.

Ideally, it should be able to analyze and overwrite /etc/network/interfaces.

Yes, I know it can lead to troubles in case of a misconfiguration (just as any set top box), and I can live with it.

    Have you heard of Webmin? It's too long ago I've last used it that I could write a recommendation for this, but it should cover your needs (and more). – Izzy Aug 8 '16 at 15:12
  • @Izzy Wow! It looks quite good. Thank you very much! – peterh Aug 8 '16 at 16:29

    @Izzy Yes, so I will do it. And, if I have time, I will check the unanswered questions, maybe I can help others. :-) – peterh Aug 8 '16 at 16:35

As @Izzy explained, I have tried webmin and it works much better as it is common from the control panels.

It has also modules for the network configuration.
