Objectives: Manage the network related services to reduce the man power to meet business requirements in a competitive environment. Methods: A combination of hardware and software system is developed using System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) to administer any active individual components of a network using TC/IP protocol and Telnet 25 as application layer11. The system has advantage over the existing conventional methods to manage the network components without physical accessing the individual component or components in bulk. Findings: The tool presented in this study can be considered as the core of future network management system and can be integrated with other in house developed systems. The system facilitates a network engineer to utilize such tool as it is compatible with any manageable network device that supports tcp/ip8and telnet session10. An engineer while sitting on his seat can manage network devises without physically accessing the devices contrary to the existing method that require configuring a device at the location of the device. The tool is customizable for adding more functionality, such as readymade buttons with pre-programmed scripts to enhance the scalability of the tool. The gui presents all of the functionalities of the system which could be invoked through different buttons such as backup etc. Application/Improvements: The system can be applied to manage the network in bulk remotely and improved the efficiency in network management industry. It could be further improved by making intelligent by integrating with the historical knowledge.
