If you can run it from a unix/linux based machine you could write a fairly
simple perl or shell script to run nmap or a command line nessues client
from a cronjob, have it test the machines, on the network, dump it to a txt
file and compare it to other scans of the same kind when you know there
wasn't any other un-authorized machines on the network.

Not sure if that's what you're looking for or not.

Subject: System information gathering

Does anyone have suggestions of software that can do a detailed probe of a
workstation or server. From time to time it's possible a system is placed on
the network that isn't supposed to be there, I'd love to be able to target
it and externally probe it for whatever info can be gathered. We currently
have a few vulnunerability scanners but they don't return as much info as
I'd like
