Any idea where I could find the VMware appliance? I have searched Google
and found lots of references to the program but not a VMware appliance.
I can install this under Linux but if I can get a virtual machine is already
configured, that would be great.

Subject: Re: Discovering network topology
I was wondering if there were special ways to discover networks
topologies / mapping networks. Are there particular tools or methods I
should be aware of ? The few tools I tried only gave me approximative
results. However I think nmap + the standard unix tools can do a good
part of the job.
Moreover, what are the differences between discovering an
organisation's network from the inside, and from the outside ?
I mean, what are the best practices to discover network equipments,
subnets, VPNs, etc? I know that traceroute can be a good starting
point, but are there some other tools and techniques I should know ?
Try Netdisco - google it. There's even a VMWare appliance of it.
