Hi Jon,

Assume it's Cisco we're talking about? If so CDP would be helpful in
this situation.

Here is a previous thread, old but useful
http://seclists.org/pen-test/2003/May/0124.html

Also, give ICMP and SNMP a shot

cheers
Ivan

Hi,

A network recon question: When pen testing an environment that deploys multi-layer switching, how can one reliably map 
the network and the relative location of all of the switches?

Add to this VLANS... How can you map VLANs that are on the network, especially if your access is but on one VLAN, and 
that VLAN is different than the switch management VLAN?

Thoughts, tools, tricks, white papers, etc. appreciated.

THANKS!
Jon Kibler
