In recent years, a large number of businesses and universities have installed local area networks (LAN) based on the Windows NT domain model as their primary computing environment. The system administrators of these new computing environments are finding that the simple remote administration capabilities available in UNIX based LAN are not available. The Windows NT operating system, out of the box, does not provide a simple solution to perform remote administration. The remote administration can be achieved, if an administrator has the expertise in writing Windows scripts using the Windows Resource Kit or writing commands in the Perl language. The majority of current system administrators do not have time to acquire such knowledge. In this paper, we present the preliminary work done in developing a distributed remote LAN administration tool for Windows NT and 2000 based LAN developed for the system administrators at the University of Wyoming. The distributed remote administration tool is being developed with an object-oriented architecture and a graphical user interface
