About Layer 2 Network Discovery
WhatsConnected discovers the devices on your network and displays a topological map of the network's physical structure. WhatsConnected also captures detailed information about each device, including IP and MAC addresses for all interfaces on the device, information about software installed on the device, and more.
There are three ways to add devices with the Layer 2 Network Discovery:
- Through the Layer 2 Network Discovery option in the WhatsConnected console menu. For more information, see Run Discovery.
- Through the single device discovery option in the WhatsConnected console menu. For more information, see Add New Device in the WhatsConnected Help.
- Through the Getting Started with WhatsConnected Wizard that appears when you start WhatsConnected. For more information, see Getting started with WhatsConnected.
