I managed a 3-PC home network with Cisco Network Magic Pro v. 4.9x. Just added a fourth cleint, a Thinkpad running Win 7 Pro 64-bit and after installing NM on the laptop, found that Cisco discontinued the program and shut down its sever used to register NM (to elevate the free version to pro). The free version of NM isn't worth the disk space it occupies so am looking for a NM alternative I can install on all four clients.
Googled "network magic alternative" but found only Spiceworks Desktop as a viable alternative. Issue is, Spiceworks is not exactly user-friendly and is geared more toward IT professionals, not home network administrators.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
