MAC-to-switchPort mapping

I wander what Windows 2K tool should I use (if there is something like this) to obtain a MAC-to-switchPort mapping for HP Procurve 4000M and 8000M switches. Could "HP TopTools for Hubs and Switches" help me on this one?

Re: MAC-to-switchPort mapping

Toptools should do it. Look under Inventory Reports in the online help if you already have a copy.

There are lots of other ways. You can telnet to the switch, logon and just ask it with the menu (Main Menu/Status and Counters/Port Address Table) or command line (show bridge [port-number]). You can browse to it and pull up the page.

You can also use ICMP to get the info. I use a little freeware program called getif.exe which will query a switch and give me the value of any ICMP MIB that it knows. (A complete HP MIB file is available at: http://www.hp.com/cgi-bin/cposupport/swindex.pl?p=mibsforhps11110&l=en&c=MIB).There are many others.

Look at Switch Digger:

but it is only for Linux, sorry.
