    Getting IP from switch over network

    hey ppl, probably a dumb question but I just took on a new position and the tech before me didn't leave any docs. so no passwords/IP's for the Cisco switches we have here. Is there a tool that can pull that info, atleast the IP addy's so I can telnet instead of actually doing some work and going to the closets and console in?


    thx,
    -J

    Perfect tool for the job.

    Scanned the network when I started here and pulled it all for me.

    I would get that tech's number and see if I could get a bit of information from him/her.

    Fing or The Dude are a couple of good scanners.

    I know from experience it is not always possible to contact a previous tech for reasons that are particular to each school.

    can I run this during work hours or will it congest my network?
