CDP ?

When doing a

SHOW CDP NEIGHBORS DETAIL

on a switch, what information will be given about the hosts.

The Cisco book says that only Cisco devices will be described, but the
output shows an H for host. PCs (hosts) are not going to be a Cisco device.

Will it give the IP, MAC address, host name... on a given switch port?

Thank you for the help,

John

Re: CDP ?
doubt that it would show HOST information .. since HOSTs dont send out CDP
packets.. (unless configured i guess?) ..

Cisco Call Manager is a pc that runs CDP.  Can't remember off the top of my
head what capabilities it shows in cdp on the switch.

Not necessarily Cisco devices, but devices supporting CDP protocol. For
example, many HP ProCurve switches support CDP, therefore show on the list.

Without CDP Monitor (or other program supporting CDP talk) PC hosts are
not going to be CDP enabled. I find it quite strange that you see
neighbouring PCs on your switch... but maybe I don't know something I
should.

For me, nope, unless CDP is configured with software on a host.
