Managed Switch Port Mapping Tool -
Software for Discovering Devices Attached to Network Switch Ports
Do you have a rack of ethernet network switches
with cables leading to who knows where?
Do you need to discover and identify the network devices
attached to your switches?
Do you need a single app to map port usage on several
different brands of switches?
We can help! Our Managed Switch Port Mapping
Tool can discover and show you the MAC addresses and IPv4
addresses of devices attached to the physical ports of your
switches. Supply the access credentials for each switch
and map them manually or as a list of switches.
The Managed Switch Port Mapping Tool can map SNMP managed switches
from many manufacturers.
Examples of supported brands**: Cisco (IOS and Nexus),
Hewlett Packard, SMC, Dell, Netgear, 3-com, D-Link, Linksys,
Nortel, Enterasys Cabletron and others.
See the models we have tested it with here.
**not all switches can be mapped due to differences in
SNMP firmware support and hardware versions. Requires
SNMP read access.
Version 2 Slideshow
Fast - supports SNMP v2c/v3 Bulk
Transfer mode. This mode reduces required SNMP bandwidth
significantly. Bulk Transfer mode is not supported by
Map Switches Manually one at a time or
as a set of switches in a list.
Switch Lists - map a group or set of switches,
record the mapping results in the History Database and
optionally automatically export the XML results for each
switch to files as the switch list is mapped.
History Database - all switch mappings
are automatically saved here. Searchable. Review a
at a later time.
SNMPv3 - supports USM access model SNMPv3 requests.
Command Line - run the app from the command
line using various options. Use Windows Task Scheduler to
map a switch or switch list when you need it mapped.
Optional Columns - 16 optional columns supporting
RMON and Cisco packet related counters including overruns
etc. New Voice VLAN column added in v2.41 that currently
supports Cisco switches.
LLDP and CDP neighbor information are reported.
See neighboring devices like other switches and routers
connected to a switch port. Often shows the
attached device's corresponding port too.
Import ARP tables from text files. Use
this for networks where IP/MAC address pairings are
Updated User Interface - has the Windows
8/Office 2013 look and feel using skins. Change the appearance
of the program to other styles.
A fully portable USB version is also
available. No installation required on the host
Do you have a v1 license?
Upgrade from v1.x license to v2.x license.
The Managed Switch Port Mapping tool communicates with managed Ethernet
network switches using SNMPv1/v2c/v3 and discovers the MAC and IP addresses
of devices attached to the physical port jacks on the front of the
switches. The software is intended for use on Microsoft Windows®
operating systems and can be also used on Apple MAC OSX if you use Windows
inside a virtual machine like VMware Fusion or Parallels.
No switch is too big or too small,
but it must
be capable of being 'managed' using SNMP (simple network management
protocol) and it must support Bridge MIB. We have customers using
this tool on switches as small as the Cisco SF 300-08 series all
the way up to core switches like the Cisco 6500 series.
All you have to do is enter the switch IPv4 address and
the SNMP v1/v2c/v3 read-only credentials.
Then press Map
Switch. We do the rest. Watch one of the videos to see it in action.
Results are presented in a spreadsheet-like grid.
You can print the results or export the results to your favorite
spreadsheet program as either tab-delimited text or as XML.

News and Reviews
Version 2.42 was released on January 22, 2015
- his release fixes a problem where a first time user would see
an unimportant error message on startup because the history
database was empty. The 2.41 release from Jan 14 improves VLAN reporting for Cisco switches and
adds a new optional column showing Voice VLAN assignments
(currently only supports Cisco switches).
Version 2.42 is a free upgrade if you have a 2.x license.
V2.42 is a
not a free upgrade
if you have a licensed older version 1.x.
