I'm not completely sure what you want to view on the LAN. One possibility is a network Scanner, like GFI's Lannetscan (or the free wireshark, but that is more difficult to understand how to use).

Another possibility could be a software which you can use to inventory your hardware and the software installed on it via the network. Everest, belarc or the free SIW could be an option there:

If it is more an enterprise network management solution you are after, then I suggest either opennms or nagios.
