it may will NOT produce a visio diagram, but you'll get at least the picture, and you can 're-draw' the map in Visio. (at least half the job is done automatically)

This was a feature in Visio 2003 => http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/visio-help/what-happened-to-the-autodiscovery-feature-HA001093558.aspx

You could install 2003 again and install the addon and try to use it. Alternativly you could use http://www.spiceworks.com/ which does'nt create visio diagrams but also provide you with an up to date network map of your network. And it's free. It also has a lot more detection capacities like reading out switches and firewalls... and it's free :)

And also take a look at this: LANsurveyor Express they say they'll do it for visio: http://www.solarwinds.com/products/LANsurveyorExpress/

Gluck!

Do You Know the 4 Main Threat Actor Types?

Do you know the main threat actor types? Most attackers fall into one of four categories, each with their own favored tactics, techniques, and procedures.
