Resolving network issues can be a daunting task. Understanding your topology can be half the battle when attempting to isolate these problems. A very useful tool that can be used to map and discover what's on your network is an application known as MXView. MXView is a software program developed by Moxa that does exactly what the name implies - gives you a "view" of your network including its topology. Check out this great video from Moxa providing an overview of the basic setup and configuration of the software.
