Cisco Network Assistant and 2950/3550 Switches
I'm just wondering if anyone has had any joy configuring CNA on their network? There seems to be a myriad of information out there on successfully configuring your switches to work with CNA.
Do you need to give just one ethernet interface on a Switch an IP address, make sure SNMP and HTTP Server is enabled and will CDP then discover all the other (cisco) hardware on the network. Or, does configurations need to be made on all switches?
cheers in advance

I've got CNA running. It's not the fastest thing in the world, but it seems to work.
I've got HTTP and SNMP on. The switches each need an IP.
As long as you have all your switch passwords (the same) - add a switch (eg. a 3550) to a new community then let it go search for 'neighbours'.
Bear in mind that you can only have a limited number of switches in a community, 16-18 I think, but you can have multiple communities.
Could be spouting utter drivel of course... I'm sure there are greater minds here that can help :wink:
