Port mapping is correlating port information to MAC address and IP address information. The MAC and IP address information is discovered through a router or server directly connected to the same subnet as the switch or hub.

Switches and hubs that support the BRIDGE-MIB can be mapped. If you are not sure if your device supports the BRIDGE-MIB, try to use the tool. Many devices support this MIB. Device details for switches and hubs that do not support BRIDGE-MIB cannot be discovered.

Use the Ping Sweep tool to sweep the subnet before running Switch Port Mapper. This improves the details of the mapping by pre-loading the ARP table of the router.

  1. Click Switch Port Mapper on the toolbar.
  2. Enter the IP address or host name of the switch to map, and then select or enter the credentials or community string used to communicate with the switch.
    • If your switch is a Layer 3 switch, select Get Layer 3 info from switch.
    • If your switch is not a Layer 3 switch, enter the IP address or host name of the router that the switch is connected to in the Layer 3 Device field. This is the router or server to which the hub or switch is connected. This device is used to gather MAC and IP address information to correlate with the hub or switch port information.
  3. Select or enter the credentials or community string used to communicate with the router.
  4. Click Map Ports.
  5. To enable or disable an interface, right-click the interface in the results table, and then click Enable/Disable Interface.
