Abstract: Managing the usage of Local Area Network is an important task as it helps in maintaining the productivity of the LAN There exists tools for this purpose and most of them are web interface based, they can control and monitor the usage only when connected to internet. Moreover proper usage logging and usage control based on the already set schedule is also absent. Practically, this management do not suffice the need of higher educational institutions because the areas like accountability, usage logging and control is not addressed in this approach. Both are important factor of enhancing management of LAN. This research paper proposes a tool-LABGUARD to incorporate these features. Further the tool has been implemented using .Net Technology. As a result, the usage of systems was accountable, only the authorized user could access the assigned sites with granted privileges at the retrospective time. Thus the system became more accountable and secured. It also enhanced the control of administrator on entire lab setup. It also facilitates the administrator to retrieve log details.
