Win2k Server Admin from WAP Interface

By Steven Rosson ·
I am looking for something I can install on my Windows 2000 Server that will allow me to manage active directory from a WAP device. I am managing AD for a small company and would love the ability to be able to perform certain administrative tasks (i.e. reset passwords) from the comfort of my web-enabled cellular telephone. Does anyone know of such software?

This is an interesting question. I had never thought of it! Anyway, there are no native tools to do this, but I did find a 3rd party tool that might work:
"StarAdmin provides Network Administrators and IT personnel the ability to access and manage their enterprise systems (Windows 2000, Windows NT, and Windows XP) from a wide array of wireless handheld devices such as PalmOS, PocketPC, RIM, and WAP-enabled phones. With the functionality of a Microsoft? Management Console (MMC) and the convenience of wireless access, IT personnel are always in control! An Administrator can not only identify what the problem is but also take corrective actions right away, without having to call on another person, travel to the network management center or even to the nearest management console. With StarAdmin, system admin is literally in your pocket!"

There is a 15-day trial copy you can download and try. So, give it a shot and let me know if it works or not!
