Hello,
I have tested Kiwi Cat Tools.
But do you know, there are some more or better network management tools in the web ?
maybe some good freeware ?
For me is really important to backup my configs of switches and routers and so on.

try using solarwinds LANSutveyor.  I like it for managing small to mid-sized client networks.  Give you mapping, documentation and management capabilities all under one roof.

Get it here.

Solarwinds is awesome as above.

Depending on the number of devices you have,

My favorite free router/switch backup solution is the open source RANCID tool, but it has a steep learning curve. Awesome for 1000 device networks, but unless you are an experienced hand with Linux/Unix not worth the effort.

Hi,

For configuration management there are two top tools. The Solarwinds NCM and the Rancid in Open-source.

Rancid                              www.shrubbery.net/rancid
Solarwinds NCM               www.solarwinds.com

I personally recommend NCM as it is a complete product with all necessary features.
