The FreeNAC Web GUI
The web interface is not as rich as the primary Windows interface, a brief overview is given here. If offers easy access to information but only allows a few fields to be edited.
It is useful in situations where the Windows GUI is not installed, or to quickly troubleshoot. The WebGUI was rewritten in V3.0.2, these screen shots are from the previous version.
See also the WebGUI Install Guide.
The interface allow search of specific devices, and changing of Vlans (if authorized). The search syntax is directly taken from MySQL (e.g. search "srv%" for all hosts beginning by "srv")
From the general view, you can see available details about each hosts (here shown with Microsoft WSUS information)
The 'hub finder' makes a list of switch ports where more than one device was seen in the last days, indicating probably a hub or unmanaged switch or a PC with Virtual Machines.
This GUI maps switch port usage in the last 24 hours. We see one device on port 2/13, it is connected via cable X04.012 in room 4.16, here the PC 'murderdrool' is attached and this PC is assigned to the Use ‘ALLGAE’. We also see a printer on port 2/24.
