Open Source Computer/User Management
I have been working on my own version of Computers and User management tool and getting closer to an alpha release of the code and program. Some details are contained below on what the tool hopes to achieve. If you would prefer just to look at some screenies then click here.
Fully open source PC/User management program.
Its high level aims are to enable PCs to be easily managed and monitored.
Allow for PCs to be started up and shutdown via schedules.
Currently geared towards being run by IT support staff, but could also be skinned/coded to give a teacher look and feel ;)
What does it do?
It lists all computers in a domain, OU (using AD or NetBIOS) or pre defined group> If a user is logged in it can show this information.
Can also manually add machines to create rooms.
It can run a series of commands and events against user/machine
Establish remote connection via VNC/RDP etc
Show remote screen print
connect to user home folder
connect to user profile
connect to local shares on machine
Disable internet via proxy or closing running instances via a timer.
Startup(via mac from DHCP server), Shutdown and restart.
Written in c# does not need client software installing, but do require version 2.0 of the framework.
Uses threads to interface with clients when using WMI and registry access
Stores logging data in SQLite and configs in xml.
Need help to document, test and code.
The project code will be released via sourceforge SVN and project documented and managed using Google sites.

If you are interested in joining the project please let me know. Any level of experience welcomed, as I am struggling to do this in my free time!
