Utility to make network port flash?
I currently use a Fluke tester for much of my day to day network diagnostics, but at roughly £1000 a piece, a 2nd one for a technician at a remote site isn't about to happen any time soon...
So, on the Fluke I do have, there is the facility to make a network switch port 'flash' in such a way so you can tell which data node goes to which port on the switch. I simply plug the Fluke into a node, set the correct mode on the Fluke, and the port on the switch 'flashes' (differently to how they normally flash with data so it's easy to recognise which port is being polled).
Great for mapping rooms where no prior knowledge of what goes where is known!
I am looking for a freeware software utility to run under Windows XP/7 that may be able to do the same; something the 2nd technician can run on a laptop. They could plug the laptop into the node, run the software, and it will flash the LED lights in such a way so they can see which port their node terminates at on the switch.
Hope that makes sense? Any ideas?
