Thanks for your comments.
I don't want a web interface. The use of a browser within my network 
immediately increases the risk of malware (unfortunately the software runs on 
Windows only), because once one browser window is open then its just two mouse 
clicks to another tab.
All the malware that has entered my work network has been through browser use, 
so I am more than moderately paranoid about this.

Physicians are not coders and sysadmins. My long distance assistant helps me 
with the sysadmin and does all the necessary coding (bash scripts etc). He's 
at Uni, and I pay his keep.
Otherwise I would pay local someone to do the work.

It may or may not be worthwhile, but it still has to be done.
