    You can View Shares either from Network Places or within Admin Tools > Computer Management > Shared Folders

    Add and Monitor Devices? Could you give an example?

    Remote Access, either Remote Desktop or VNC like you suggested

    Vital Statistics - Either Task Manager or Admin Tools > Performance or Event Viewer

    Not too sure what you mean by monitoring shares, but all the rest (and a GREAT deal more!) you can do using Spiceworks - get it at Spiceworks - Free Network Monitoring Software for Network Management

    It is an absolutely suberb tool. In fact we use it on our school network and it copes just fine (even though they say it was meant for smaller networks). We now know what printer consumable levels are at any point just by running a report and we get all sorts of automated alerts.

    Best of all, it's free. Well, ad-supported, but the ads are off to the side.

    Sounds like you want Windows Home Server.
