Cisco and Network Discovery tools

I have been given the task of auditing a Cisco based network.
The network contains 1800, 2800 and 3600 series devices.

There is also Pix (515e) and ASA platform.

As my command line is a little "rusty" to say the least, can anyone help with advice on GUI tools for managing Cisco devices and general network discovery.

Well the pix and ASA should have the ASDM built-in.

And also for the routers there should be a similar build in gui: SDM

I agree with erniebeek on using the built in ASDM and GUIs on the devices.

If they aren't enabled go to global configuration mode and type

ip http server enable - port 80
or
ip http secure-server enable - port 443

you should be able to use your web browser, and the management ip address of the device to access the GUI.

As for network discovery, i would look at the Cisco Network Assistant.

General network discovery:
A really good one is spiceworks (its adware but quite a good inventory package).
Another really good tool is "angry ip scanner". It will scan a network range and try to interrogate the devices on each IP address.

Thanks Guy's, my first day and I was able to completely audit a PIX 515e by the end of the day and that included getting me sorted on the network, interview with IT Head and a walk around the estate.

So thank you all !

Best wishes
