    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.

    Weren't any of the links I posted of any use? I suggest either a delete / No Refund or then the asker should post the reason why my suggestions didn't work.
