RE: Discovering network topology




I am familiar with Cheops but thought it was only unix (didn't check the
sourceforge link yet) -- is there an open source tool for windows based
networks?

Have a look at cheops-ng
http://cheops-ng.sourceforge.net/
It's based on nmap and traceroute. Check out the screenshots to be sure
that's what you need.
It's nice and free .. as fas as I know

Hi list,

I was wondering if there were special ways to discover networks
topologies / mapping networks. Are there particular tools or
methods I should be aware of ? The few tools I tried only gave me
approximative results. However I think nmap + the standard unix
tools can do a good part of the job.

Moreover, what are the differences between discovering an
organisation's network from the inside, and from the outside ?
I mean, what are the best practices to discover network equipments,
subnets, VPNs, etc? I know that traceroute can be a good starting
point, but are there some other tools and techniques I should know ?

Regards,
