Subject: Automating patch deployment

If your network is not too large, consider Languard NSS from GFI. At
$799 for an unlimited license, it can deploy OS and security patches to
all the products you mentioned. It might not have all the bells and
whistles and fancy reporting of SMS or HFNetChkPro or PatchLink or
Update Expert, but it seems to do the job.

Oh, and it does network enumeration, port scanning, service discovery,
banner grabbing, Windows password cracking, and a bunch of other stuff.
It's definitely not the best tool available at anything it does, but for
most uses it's good enough.

They have a 30 day fully functional free trial, after which the patch
deployment and some of the reporting functions turn off unless you buy a
license. You can continue to use the rest of the product for free.

Subject: [Full-Disclosure] Automating patch deployment

We have two networks, one AD and one NT4.0. We can not use AD to deploy
patch packages to workstations that are not part of the AD (Active
Directory), but are part of the NT domain. Not really interested in
purchasing SMS as it seems too costly (why should we?). Considering
HFNetChkPro 4 to automate the deployment of patches to our workstations
servers, as doing it manually is far too costly and time consuming for
company. Are there any other utilities or software that anyone (possibly
free?) recommends that could be used to simplify patch deployment and
management to every workstation and server. We use Windows NT, 2000 and
workstation products, and NT4.0/2000/2000 Adv server products.

Thank You,
