About the Select button

The IP/MAC Finder tool's Select feature uses previously discovered network information to help you find a device, then select the device for which to search the network for sightings of its IP or MAC address.

To use the Lookup button:

  1. Open the IP/MAC Finder tool from either the WhatsConnected or WhatsUp Gold console (see Using the IP/MAC Finder).
  2. Click Select. The Select Devices dialog appears. This dialog allows you to pick a device from your existing network discovery.
  3. In the Device Filter list, select the device type you want to display in the Device List. All device devices are listed by default. The device list displays those devices that match the device filter criteria.
  4. Select a device in the list, then click OK. The IP address and MAC address automatically fills the IP Address and MAC Address fields.
