Abstract This project topic “Network Monitoring System” was carried out with a view to deploying effective monitoring for computers in a local Area Network. The project developed a system that lets administrators remotely monitor computers in a network. My aim is to show how user interface can be applied to provide a complete solution for monitoring networks. Securing and monitoring a network is an important issue since computers connected in a network can be faulty and its operation reduced, so an effective security and monitoring measures has been deployed that allows administrators to intuitively manage the network. The system was developed using visual basic 6.0 programming language. This language was used because of its easy syntax and structure for developing graphical user interface windows based application.
