Network Discovery on AWS

Does anyone have any good tools or guidance on how I can run a network discovery on an AWS environment?  IT guy left their department so I need to run a network discovery on this and see how everything is configured from a network perspective.  I am fairly new to AWS.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Depends.  If you have Windows hosts under your EC2 using the Admin tool you can download "Solar Winds IPAM Tool" for free.  You also have NMAP and HDPING.  All free.  But this information should be available from AWS Console.  You don't get network allocations by default you get Internet IP accessible IP addresses and generally a certificate is used for RDP or SSH if Linux.

Go here:

Login > On top right hand side click My Account > Choose AWS Management Console

Bottom left is Networking
Click "Direct Connect"


Top Left > EC2
This is your virtual servers.  You can install Solar Windows IPAM tool, NMAP for Windows on a Windows Server.  NMAP and HDPING for Linux OS.


Bottom Right > Workspaces
This is your virtual Desktops
