We have a Cisco 6507, 4809?, and many 3750's. What's the easiest way to be able to manage via a GUI?

Thanks!!

IIRC Cisco Prime Infrastructure is the current replacement for CiscoWorks.  Beyond that there are the usual suspects for SNMP platforms with SolarWinds at the top (IMHO) the list.

Awesome. Thanks a lot. What solarwinds product would handle this? We have the engineers toolkit and SNMP is enabled and I'm getting reports. But what product would I use to manage them?
Thanks again!

Engineers Toolkit with Config Editor/Viewer and Config Uploader is as good as it gets with Solarwinds.  For pure GUI configuration, CiscoWorks or Prime are the only products I've seen for the 6500.  I can't say for certain, but the 3750's may have SDM capability.  

But at the end of the day, most configuration of 6500's and 4500's is done with the command line.
