was released on May 17, 2013. Version
2.x is a major release with many user requested additions.
The new features are listed on the right in the slideshow.
Now also available as a
USB Flash Drive Application - no installation
required on the host computer system.
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?
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.
Do you need a single app to map port usage on several
different brands of switches?
The Managed Switch Port Mapping Tool can map SNMP managed switches
from many manufacturers.
Other Switch Port Mappers usually map one manufacturer's
switches - and most often only Cisco - and they have problems
mapping other brands.
Examples of supported brands**: Cisco (IOS and Nexus),
Hewlett Packard, SMC, Dell, 3-com, D-Link, inksys,
Nortel, Enterasys Cabletron and others.
**not all switches can be mapped due to differences in
SNMP firmware support and hardware versions.
Version 2 Slideshow
New in Version 2:
Switch Lists - map a set of switches and
save their results to the History Database.
History Database - all switch mappings
are automatically saved here. Searchable. Review a mapping
SNMPv3 - supports USM style 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.
New Columns - 16 new columns supporting
RMON and Cisco packet related counters including overruns
LLDP and CDP are now reported.
Use them to see devices like other switches and routers
directly connected to a switch port. Often shows the
attached device's corresponding port too.
Faster - supports SNMP v2c/v3 Bulk
Transfer mode to reduce required SNMP bandwidth.
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.
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.
