Re: bridge detection

You could use nmap with the -O option enable and it will identify if
it is a pc, switch, router and sometimes will give you the versiĆ³n and
brand.

Also you could use ettercap and start sniffing the network and it will
show you the devices it can identify as.


Good Luck.

hi,

   I was wondering are there any programs which can detect switches/routers, based as well on linux.

   The problem is that one company is setting up large LAN, with internet access, based on static ip/mac address, for 
paying reasons. Many clients seperate their connection, often giving mac of the bridge not the PC.

   i had many ideas about that, eg. checking the vendor for the mac, signal replays from the source.

i worry also about 'clear' switches, non programmable ones.

  Could please someone give me some advise?

sorry for my bad english.
