The purpose of this page is to help you
improve the quality of the results you are getting from the Switch
Port Mapping Tool.
You received a poor IP/MAC address ratio, ie.
you are not getting as many IP addresses to match the MAC addresses
as you would like to see. IP addresses are found by matching
the MAC addresses the switch reports with MAC addresses found in the
ARP tables of the four sources we can access. You can improved the
IP to MAC matching ratio by selecting one or two SNMP enabled
routers or servers to query for ARP tables. These devices need to be
aware of the devices that are attached to the switch, ie. in the
same network. A Cisco 6509 is a great source of well populated ARP
Version 2.x adds the ability to import a static ARP table.
Create the ARP table by saving a text file with one IP/MAC address
pair per line. Then click on Database Management and click on Import
ARP Table - follow the directions.
