Scanning Switches

13 February 2012 - 03:33 AM

Now that my TNI is working with my Linux hosts, I have another question to ask.

My network here contains a whole load of switches, and most hosts are connected to the server through at least one, more likely two switches. Is there any way I can see those switches in TNI and maybe even determine which host is connected through which switch(es)? I'm trying to draw up a network diagram, but I'd rather not have to crawl around under a dozen desks chasing ethernet cables.


Bad Temp File Names

09 February 2012 - 04:35 AM

I have encountered the following problem with TNI 2 on a Windows XP machine:
Whenever I scan a Linux system, the scanner attempts to create a temporary file in
c:\Documents\[Username]\Local Settings\Temp\TNITEMPSCANDIR\*
with a filename containing a question mark (?).
Naturally, Windows refuses to create such a file, since question marks are not allowed in filenames.
When scanning a Windows PC (the one I'm working on, since the rest of the network runs Linux), no such error occurs.

System setup is as follows:
1 Windows XP machine running TNI 2.0.4 Trial Version (won't upgrade to full unless it's working, obviously)
1 Centos 6 server
15 Centos 6 clients

All machines are successfully detected, and the scan runs up to 95% before quitting. I used the root account on the Linux machines, since Centos doesn't normally allow sudo. On the Windows machine I use an administrator account.

Thanks in advance,

*That's probably not the correct name, I use the German version of XP, where all the paths have neat German names, which makes googling the error so much easier ....
