CDP Application

(Cross posted into


Recently my very old and aged copy of Cisco Works V3 running on Windows NT V4 has died and I no longer have the available cash to go out and buy the latest version of CW Campus.

Apart from all the wonderful functionality inside CW I mainly used the network viewer so I could draw out the network topology which I believe relied solely on CDP. This also proved a valuable teaching resource when showing other techies exactly what the front of a Cat5 looked like when you were no where near it. I am aware of Cisco Network Administrator available FOC from CCO but need to map out around 300+ Cisco devices and I believe CNA is limited to 15 nodes

Is anyone aware of any application similar to this which will draw the network. I use SolarWinds on my desktop but am not happy with this for drawing out the topology as it VERY often gets routes and links wrong, as does WhatsUp

In anticipation
