    I'm wondering if anyone knows of an app for keeping network information organized and easy to find. IP address for computers and printers, work that's been done/needs to be done and things of that nature. In the past I've used tried different apps but never a one app fits all and it's never really easy to find exactly what info I'm looking for when I need it.

    I'm getting one of my old jobs back as network support for various locations and I want to keep track of everything for these locations.

    Also, could anyone reccomend good network utilities for OSX. I used to use Linux but I'm really out of practice with it and really don't feel like using it again.

    Actually, it depends on what you'll be managing - Remote Desktop is a pretty decent, reasonably priced app for managing Macs and - via VNC - PCs. I'm not sure of a good cross-platform app in that price range.

    What types of systems will you manage, and what's your budget? There's obviously OpenView, Tivoli, etc - but those can be pricey.

    And for organizing info - why not just a spreadsheet? Not perfect, but it'd be sortable, etc.
