Is there a way for additional users that have root/sudo privileges to be able to log-on to ClearOS 7 units locally (ie monitor and keyboard plugged into unit) at the red login screen?

I know that Alt+F2 will get a regular terminal login where any user can log in, but I was not able to figure out how to start the graphical network configuration page from there.

My goal is for local system administrators to be able to configure network settings directly on the hardware onsite without needing to give the root password.

I'd see two ways to achieve my goal:
1. [feature-request] make it possible to log in as any user at the red login box, and then allow/deny options based on user-group level, OR
2. [information-request] point me toward a command or documentation on what command (after "sudo su") to bring up the graphical network config screen).

Or maybe there's a different option to take.
Thanks in advance!

    I don't know the answer to either. Before now I've killed the graphical console but don't know how to restart it. Why can't they do it through the Webconfig? You can use the Administrators app to give the users permission to whichever screens you want.
