IPplan is a free (GPL), web based, multilingual, TCP IP address management software and tracking tool written in php 4, simplifying the administration of your IP address space.

IPplan goes beyond TCPIP address management including DNS administration, configuration file management, circuit management (customizable via templates) and storing of hardware information (customizable via templates).

IPplan can handle a single network or cater for multiple networks and customers with overlapping address space.

Here are some key features of "IPplan":
importing network definitions from routing tables
importing definitions from TAB delimited files and NMAP’s XML format
multiple administrators with different access profiles (per group, allowing access per customer, per network etc.)
define address space authority boundaries per group
finding free address space across a range
split and join networks to make them smaller and larger - ip definitions remain intact
display overlapping address space between networks
search capabilities
an audit log
keeping track of and sending SWIP/RIPE/APNIC registrar information
DNS administration (forward and reverse zones, import existing zones via zone transfer)
template system to extend IPplan to contain site specific information like circuit data, host configuration data, asset information
device configuration file management
link addresses together via pointers - ideal for NAT
external stylesheet to change display look
triggers - every user event can call a user defined function - useful to execute backend DNS scripts
external poller - scan subnets for active addresses to gather usage statistics
IP address request system - allows users to request static IP addresses from the database
Two authentication methods are available - either IPplan’s own internal authentication scheme, or alternatively make use of any external Apache authentication module. This includes single sign on systems like SiteMinder or your own scheme based on LDAP, or any other Apache compatible system.
Looking for a whois server that works with IPplan - you will find one in the IPplanAPI package. Using the API you can build DHCP configs, and build all kinds of custom applications for your site by reading data out of the IPplan database.

What's New in This Release:
added: all modified reverse zones can now be exported with one export
fixed: tested mssql database via odbc_mssql driver. Fixed transaction issue with schema create, cursor issue with adodb driver (changed line 47 of /ipplan/adodb/adodb-odbc_mssql.inc.php to read $this->curmode = SQL_CUR_USE_DRIVER;
added: last exported dates to forward and reverse zones
added: cut and paste of entire forms - allows copying of info between pages - sf request #1533153
