Does anyone know of any way to send an alert when a new pc is plugged into a corporate network?  For example, if an employee brings in a home laptop and plugs it in to an open port.

We understand that we can use DHCP and mac address reservations to lock down the network but would like to first see how prevalent this is before we implement reservations.

So if anyone is aware of any 3rd party application or Windows server configuration that can accomplish this, it would be greatly appreciated.
