Locating rogue APs

Apologies if this ends up on the list multiple times.  I seem to
have trouble getting this posted in a timely fashion.

In general, MAC OUI designations may indicate a particular AP.  IP
multicast group participation may also be used by some APs. Some
APs have a few unique ports open.  Lastly, APs may be found with
a radio on a particular default channel.  All of these potentially
identifying characteristics may be used to help audit the network
for rogue IPs.  Below is information on locating particular APs:

Multicast Groups
----------------   Cisco/Aironet (newer versions)   Lucent/Avaya    Cisco/Aironet

You can locate who group members are by doing the following on a
Cisco router:

  show ip igmp group <group-ip-address>

Cisco/Aironet APs have two UDP ports open: 2887 and 7777.
