Hi, Try using WinReporter. This gives you plenty of information about the network and it is very cheap.

the LAN.

Did you get it to work over a WAN, Eric? Not sure if it natively does this
or it would need some jigging.

OCS works fine 'on the network' but I have never tried to get it to work
across firewalls/routers/different subnets so can't help there.

I've gotten Spiceworks to work over a LAN.  Though I do not recall it
the keys.

A couple of the machines on my network did not respond to spiceworks,
was never able to figure out why (though I did not spend an inordinate
amount of time attempting to figure it out).

Spiceworks? Not sure if you can get it to work over WAN.
Or ocsinventory which is open source.

Dear List,

I'm looking for some free tools which can be used to collect the
asset data (like processor speed, RAM, hard disk space. MS
windows/Office  version along with keys if possible). I want to use
these tools over the WAN (connectivity over VSAT to branch >>>
to track the asset configurations and for licensing compliance
management purpose.

I've looked at some options like BMC Discovery and Altris but these
are expensive tools. Any suggestions will be helpful.
