403 Network Discovery Tips with Domotz and EtherScope nXG

Want to quickly know what devices are on a client's network?
Here are some tips and tricks from a recent discovery audit.
Hint: Use NetAlly and Domotz


This episode expands on what I mentioned last episode where I helped a fellow MSP with a network discovery audit. I used both the NetAlly EtherScope nXG and a Domotz box to scan the network.  We do a deep dive into my audit and what I provided my client afterwards. 

For prospects, you can assure them that you won't need a password to "see" their network.

With the EtherScope you can do all this in just a few minutes:   

  • Scan up to 1024 IP Addresses
  • Determine Device Types
  • See both wired and wireless networks
  • Use SNMP to look inside routers and managed switches
  • Looks are what devices are connected to what switch
  • Identify ports with errors
  • Find bad subnet masks
