is there a way to find out a mapping between physical port on the switch and the IP address of the connected device ?

Thanks & regards

more specifically..I think you want to see an IP address of the device connected to your cisco box?

if yes...

see your arp will show you IP coming through connected port.

if it is DSL modem connected and you want to see the IP...then do "who" or "sh user"


see your arp will show you IP coming through connected port.
Hmmm... Here is what I get:

Better than nothing but if i could resolve the MAC to IP it would be most useful...
to which port of your device it is connected?

check cdp neighbor.

That shows you the MAC address in the forwarding table and which port it see's that MAC address on.

That looks more like the output of "show mac table".  Not sure if on the SG300 the command to see the arp table is "show arp" or "show ip arp".  Try one of those, once you find the IP address you want to know about then do "show mac table | i x.x.x.x" where "x.x.x.x" is the IP address you want to know about.

You could enable DHCP snooping on the switch. That won't show you static IPs, though.



Sorry a bit late responding - no sure how to "enable DHCP snooping" ? Most of our IPs are dynamic so it would be a godd starting point.

Attached a CLI reference, see at "DHCP snooping".
Basically it inspects every DHCP request, and stores the IP addresses in them in a nice table on the switch. It's for preventing rogue DHCP servers primarily, but also great for port-to-IP mapping.



Thanks - I believe that with the various pointers you gave me I shall be able to figure out which IP is used on which port.
