IP Address Management (IPAM) is an essential part of Device42. Since release of the network auto-discovery module in v2.1.1, it’s never been easier to maintain up-to-date documentation of your IP Addresses, MAC Addresses and DNS Infrastructure. In this section we will cover VLAN, Subnet, IP Address, MAC Address, Switch Port Connectivity, and IP NATs.

Discovery of IP Addresses
There are multiple options to discover IP Addresses and related information. Here are some quick links:
