IPcentral provides a comprehensive standalone intranet management tool useful for tracking manual IP address assignment and use. However it becomes more effective when combined with the power of automated IP management services.
These automated services include Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Dynamic Domain Name Server (DNS), and NetBIOS Name Server (NBNS/WINS). IPcentral's companion, Shadow IPserver, delivers these services as an integrated, reliable, and scalable automated IP management platform.
DHCP automates IP address and configuration assignment and tracking. Through IPcentral, you can define and implement global and local DHCP policies to dramatically simplify network administration:
IPcentral can deposit DNS updates directly into Shadow's Dynamic DNS service while it is in operation. IPcentral also provides the ability to view the active Shadow Dynamic DNS and to upload all configured and cached (learned) naming information. DNS names may be added, deleted, or modified individually without restarting the server. IPcentral database and GUI facilities also simplify management of DNS zone files.
