Switch Port Manager

BLËSK Switch Port Manager (SPM) can be used to locate the switch port of an end-user system by IP or MAC address. It will help us identify the switch port on which a device is connected, eliminating the task of manually tracing network cables. The network is inventoried by both device model and operating system (such as IOS).

SPM uses router ARP tables and L2 switch MAC forwarding tables to locate nodes on physical ports and track them by their IP addresses.

See the Quick Start guide to get up and running quickly with SPM.

The module features are divided into three tabs: The first, called Search, helps in making several types of searches. The Reporting tab enables us to seek additional information regarding our switches. The third tab is the administration module.
