finding a node on the network

How do I located a node on the network by just the IP? I would like to know which switch it is connected to.

Re: finding a node on the network

You will need to get its MAC using e.g. an ARP entry and then see which switch has this MAC connected to its host (non-trunk) port.

Thanks.

Re: finding a node on the network

Hi Sok,

juz issue "show ip arp " it will list with the mac address, then watt u need to issue is "show mac-address-table address ". it will show you on which port it is connected.

assume that the specified ip address is residing some where on the layer 2 switch, if it is on a layer 3 switch, juz keep issuing "show mac-address-table address " it will take to the respecitive layer 2 switch, & there again u type the same command "show mac-address-table address ", it will show you exactly on which port it is connected.

hope this helps.

rate this post if cleared.

Re: finding a node on the network

If you are using Cisco Management tool like CiscoWorks, you can find the switch port which the ip address connected to.

The procedure is as follows:

1> Launch CiscoWorks

2> Campus Manager

3> User Tracking

4> Navigate through IPs to find yours
