We have a NetTool from Fluke Networks - 1st generation
There is no support for this device anymore.
We bought this on ebay, but it displays as unregistered.
Also, when we run the auto test, the results do not show intricate information we need such as, the switch the device is plugged into, the IP address of the switch, the port the cable is plugged into on the switch etc.

We downloaded the NetTool blaster but the null modem cable I used to connect to it doesn't seem to work as the application does not recognize the device.

Anything I should look out for?

Null modem cable does not work with the device.

What you need is the NetTool link cable aka NetTool serial cable.
