10-Strike Software provides utilities for both tasks.
- 10-Strike Network Inventory Explorer's client app can be started from a USB stick and collect the inventory data locally from a PC, and then save it to the stick. Later, you can import the data into the main program and primary PC database.
After the program installation, you can find the client app here
"C:\Program Files (x86)\10-Strike Network Inventory Explorer\Client"
Copy the Client folder to your USB stick and run the NIEClient.exe program on the desired PC. You can configure the client application using the nieclientcfg.exe configuration program (for example, select necessary inventory items, place the client shortcut to the startup folder, configure the polling schedule and pushing the data to an FTP or email server).
In the main program, you can import the data files manually
or configure their regular downloading from FTP or email if you want to configure the automatic monitoring of those remote computers over the Internet and track changes.
- One simple scanning program is free. It's 10-Strike Network Scanner. It does not draw any maps but can find all connected devices and detect their addresses.
The second program 10-Strike Network Diagram is more advanced. It supports SNMP and LLDP, can discover the network topology, and create a network map displaying the connection links and port names on managed switches.
