Use a network diagram builder wizard
This software program enables you to create network diagrams with the help of a wizard. It analyzes your LAN and arranges all found computers in groups, and draws areas around them. It is possible to detect PCs by scanning the IP range, importing computers from the network neighborhood or tracing routes.
Tweak parameters, add elements and save results to the PC
Once this process is finalized you are brought to the main window, in which you can view the detected topology. Here you have access to a large number of templates, such as different types of lines, areas, text boxes and devices. Aside from that, you can use a search function, lock area and line layers, set the background with a photo from the hard drive (PNG, JPG, BMP, ICO, EMF and WMF) or a snapshot from Google Maps, align certain elements and copy the format used.
Statistics regarding total number of devices, lines and areas used can be brought up in a new window, network scanning logs are available and device icon set can be changes with a few clicks. Diagrams can be saved to the hard drive as NDF, VSD(X), BMP, JPG, PNG or WMF files.
