http://stackoverflow.com – I need to list the computers, devices and other assets in the network with the details of the every machine. The application which lists all is a windows based one. I have an AD installed in a server. I have used ADSI using VBScript which could give me the details of all the devices. But still I need device specific details To communicate with Windows machines in the system I have used WMI concept and I have got details. I should communicate with MAC and Linux machines in the network to get device specific details. I have googled a lot. But I didn't get any details. How can I communicate (HowTos)
