    Auto create a network map.

    Hi Guys,

    Is there a piece of software that can scan my network and give me a network map? I have tried spice works network map but it only brings up my machine, on server and two empty clouds lol.

    Need a quick way to produce a network map.

    Thanks

    turn that service on on your machine and the others, so it's not easy. first test is to browse your network, by clicking on network, what used to be my network places. whatever you can see there is presumably what spiceworks can see. I've not used it so guessing, but whatever you can see from your machine is presumably what any other app can see.

    It does but the map it gives back is a bit difficult to read. Just wondering if there were any other alternatives?

    MS has its own program for network mapping - Visio. Or I'd recommend 10-Strike Network Diagram - Software for Creating Network Diagrams and Maps (Windows Software) its easy to use and u may install it on pc or server in order to build the network diagram

    drawing the map manually..what can be worse! try the software that builts the map automatically. but honestly, i dont like visio very much coz it doesnt always find all hosts on the network
