Have a need to trace a given Computer name or IP to a specific Switch and Port. Is there an app or tool that can do this? Want to be able to associate an IP or Name to a physical port/location.

SolarWinds Engineers edition has a Switch Port Mapper that does a good job of this.

You can do it the hard way by issueing a show arp command in your router and capturing the mac address of the ip address you are interested in. Telnet to the switch and issue a show mac-address-table command. The output of that command shows the mac-addresses of the devices on that switch as well as the port each mac address is coming in on.

Hope this helps.

You can also use L2trace command on CatOS switches.
