Cisco, Network Management, PacketTrap
The very cool PacketTrap pt360 all-in-one network management application has a new version out – version 2.0.
With this version, you get the new Cisco Configuration features (what I have personally been waiting for)!
You can download a free 21 day trial version of the software from the PacketTrap Download site (and don’t forget that they have a FREE version too)! I have used this myself and it has been very helpful and has reduced the amount of time it takes to troubleshoot and configure my network. Trust me, it is much better than some of the other all-in-one network management applications because it is all integrated – not a bunch of seperate applications
So, give it a try! What the heck, its free, right?
pt360 Tool Suite PRO: Network Management Software
The PacketTrap pt360 Tool Suite PRO edition consolidates dozens of network management and monitoring tools into a single, integrated interface. The tool suite includes Cisco configuration management, server and application monitoring, open source and third party integration, a robust encrypted credential store, the ability to save and flow results between tools, deep network discovery (with network mapping) and syslog server capabilities. All of these tools compliment the extensive real-time monitoring provided by the pt360 Dashboard. Networks are complicated. Network Management doesn’t have to be.
