Applications Management Corporation has a product called NS/LANExec
which does what you ask. Instead of NLMs, it uses WinSock-based
domain agents to monitor sets of NetWare servers. These agents are
in turn queried and managed by SunNet Manager, with both a cached
SNMP polling mechanism (to minimize cross-network traffic and, which
integrates tightly with SNM applications), as well as a full GUI
interface that allows you to perform SYSCON/PCONSOLE-type operations
on the servers. The GUI tool is included also in a Windows version
so you can letlocal LAN administrators share the management. Also,
you can apply commands across the entire domain of servers, even if
they are not 4.x.
If this seems to fit your needs, drop an e-mail to Michael Muntner

PS. Michael forwarded your request to Paul Hutton of Sun-Australia
currently running at his facility.
