  • Inventory'n machines

    This should be fairly simple for you old hats... what software would you recommend for inventorying machines, hardware and software... via lan ( do not want to visit each machine) and i would like for it to be fairly comprehensive... able to do from my office.

      unfortunately i have no access to the servers or software on them directly, i only manage the network for my department, and we have no servers here.

      i probably need a 3rd party software.

        Search for Advanced Ip Scanner. This is a scan software that will show you every equipment in your network.

            The poormans sms works fairly well if i have sp2 firewall turned off... but a dead end if not... I tried all the tricks i could think of to get past the firewall which i have on for all of my machines... any insight as to how i can use this dandy little program and still keep the firewall up?

              how about checking which port it uses and open that in the firewall?

                Try using a TCP traffic watcher (www.sysinternals.com have one TCPMon i think) to see what port it uses then open that on your XP firewall.
