This row launches the client from network shared folder and then the client sends the data that it collects to port 18888 of server every hour. In addition will be logged every login by Brian.

 Client IAT in debug mode 

 Once the initial three minutes have elapsed, the client will begin to analyze the Computer and then display a report of the data collected and sent to the IT Asset Tool Server.


As best practice, we suggest to share the client application (requested procedure during the installation) and execute it with a windows group policy. 

IT Asset Tool Client and Server need an exception of firewall port to comunicate between each other. By default the Server listens to the Tcp Port 18888 but can be customized.

IT Asset Tool can generate more different reports using appropriate flags present in the same panel:


No Windows Update: Generates a report discarding the records of windows updates.

Show only changes: Generates a report showing installation or disinstallation changes that are not approved from the last analysis.


To start the software report generation click the "UPDATE" button and the progress bar will indicate the analysis progress. 


When the analysis is completed, the IT manager can start his/her job.

Now the IT manager must evaluate either to approve any new installed / removed software or not. If it is the case, he/she must switch the flag associated to the computer name with the software to be approved. If the IT manager wants to approve the new installed or removed selected software in all the computers, he/she must press space key [the flag "Massive Approval" must be used].

If an new installed software is approved in a computer, it will not be shown in the following execution report.

If the IT manager sees a software that must not be installed in a Network Computer, he/she must not approve it and must uninstall it. IT Asset Tool can help the IT Manager to manage the remote unistallation of software in network clients automatically.

The feature permits to remove selected software automatically or by the agreement of user according to the software. The unistallation process is automatic for all .msi software, while the process will simply be driven for the other software.


Remember that the best pratice to prevent the reinstallation the users must have restricted user's rights.


In this Tab the print button permits three specific reports that show: only new installed software, only removed software or all the installed software.

IT Asset Tool is a scalable software, it can be installed on a common Computer without particular requirements or in cases where the Lan Network has a considerable extension IT Asset Tool can interface Microsoft SQL to support large volumes of data.

Network scanning can be performed in two different ways, the first mode is the "Client / Server" while the second is the "Agent Less" mode. The first can also be used in small network environments that do not use a Windows domain while the latter integrates with your domain and Active directory.


Client / Server Mode

IT Asset Tool is composed by a server and a client application the first server (ListenerIAT.exe) collect all data from client (ClientIAT.exe) of IT Asset Tool of your computers network. Another application allows the configuration and use of data collected by IT Asset Tool (IATMng.exe).

The Listener executed automatically from a Windows Service named "DaemonIAT" receives the client data and writes them in a SQLITE Database or Microsoft SQL for a simple consultation.  

To execute IT Asset Tool Client in your computer, the automatic best practice is to create a shared "Read Only" Directory in server host to deploy the application client on your Local Network and to execute it to the computer clients with a simple Windows Group Policy. 

With these easy steps you can manage automatically all software and hardware installed on the network.
