    New Spiceworks version 4.0

    Brand new spiceworks version out, little bit faster than the older version and has the following new features:
    • Network Mapping
    • Knowledge Base (although very basic)
    • New improved User Portal (Almost a full CMS now)
    • A few GUI improvements as well


    Spiceworks - Free Network Monitoring Software for Network Management

    P.S The user portal does support IE 6.0, However the admin interface doesn't anymore.

    Also for those of you that use spiceworks I found the following how-to's for more advanced features.

    Data Collector (so you don't have to waste resources scanning) - Spiceworks Agent (a.k.a. Stand-Alone Data Collector) - Spiceworks Community (can be used instead of scanning by placing in start up batch file)

    Manage Multiple Networks - Managing multiple clients from one master Spiceworks. - Spiceworks Community for thos of us that have more than one network (admin/curriculum)

    Wall mounted helpdesk screen - Wall mounted Helpdesk Status Screen - Spiceworks Community

    In my experience the admin interface has never worked very well in IE, FF has always been much more snappy.

    Must agree I found Firefox was much speeder for the admin interface than IE, but of late it has been much quicker in general

    I've got a question for those of you running Spiceworks on the same server as IIS sites.

    Spiceworks will have to use a different port, such as 8080, but am I right in thinking that it's possible to create a site in IIS and have it redirect? Such as:

    http://helpdesk as a site in IIS with a redirect set to http://helpdesk:8080 so that users can just type http://helpdesk into their browser?

    I just put a shortcut in the start menu in the IT Support group that launches it (ie http://server-ip:82)

    or you could just put a php file (or IIS equivilent) with a header redirect on it.

    I.e
    index.php
    Code:
    header(http://server-ip:8080);

    Does Spiceworks support AD integration for administrators too?

    ....good question. Not sure off the top of my head.

    I think that the AD integration is just for the help desk, not the whole application, so I think the answer is no.

    Seems that way from what I've read. Thanks Sparkeh!
