    How to make Ubuntu computers show up on Cisco Switches

    1. Run:

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install build-essential libpcap-dev
    2. Download the source code from here:

    http://snar.spb.ru/prog/cdpd/

    (actual file is http://snar.spb.ru/prog/cdpd/cdpd-1.0.4.tgz )
    (md5 7fb767a2e1644456c817bf8477406117 cdpd-1.0.4.tgz )

    3. Run:

    Code:
    tar xfz cdpd-1.0.4.tgz
    cd cdpd-1.0.4
    ./configure
    make all
    mkdir -p /usr/local/man/man8
    cp cdpd.8 /usr/local/man/man8
    cp cdpd /usr/local/sbin
    /usr/local/sbin/cdpd -a
    4. log into Cisco switch and run

    Code:
    show cdp neighbors
    output will look like

    Code:
    Device ID        Local Intrfce     Holdtme    Capability  Platform  Port ID
    ubuntubox        Fas 0/21          119            H       x86-64    eth0
    ubuntubox        Fas 0/22          119            H       x86-64    eth1
    This software is already part of the FreeBSD and Mac OS X ports trees (software repositories.) How can it be added to Ubuntu?

    Never mind, I found it myself by just going through a long list of google search keyword permutations.
