Senior Project - RAF


Network Monitoring and Configuration

Senior Project: 2001-2002
Andrew Burr, Eddie Dejthai, Jonathan Fisher, Eric Fry and Jennifer Masamitsu
Broomfield, CO

eSoft is an Internet software company, located in Broomfield, Colorado, which develops Internet security and management appliances targeted at small to medium sized enterprises. Their products are affordable, high performance Internet software applications and network devices. These devices provide basic Internet applications, managed services, and business-to-business solutions.

One of the major tasks facing eSoft's enterprise customers was the management of numerous network appliances. There are software packages such as Spectrum and HP OpenView, which provide customers with advanced network management. Unfortunately, these network management software packages were very expensive. In addition, eSoft devices were not compatible with these commercial network management packages.

The first goal of this project was to enable eSoft's larger customers with more expensive network management software to monitor and control eSoft's network devices. The second goal was to enable eSoft's smaller customers who do not own expensive network management software to monitor and control multiple eSoft network devices.

The resulting system is a remote network configuration tool designed for use with eSoft's network appliances. The system consists of two components. The first component is a graphical tool that can be used to configure eSoft's network appliances, while the second component is an SNMP agent that can be used to configure these devices using a commercial network management system.
