Does anyone know of a utility that can be used to trace through a network to identify what switch and what switch port a PC is connected to? I know this can be done using Campus Mgr user tracking but I would think there is a nice shareware or freeware utility that could do the same thing that has less overhead.
The steps required to find what switch port a PC is connected to involves running a traceroute to the PCs IP address. Logging onto the router at the last hop, showing the IP arp to get the PCs MAC, showing a CDP neighbor on that router, telneting to the switch connected to that router and possibly jumping over to another switch if one is connected then showing the CAM or MAC address table to find the port. This can sometimes be a lengthy process. Surely theres a nifty utility that could be installed on a PC that will do the same thing.
