Anyone ever seen this before? I thought CDP was Cisco only...perhaps other companies are figuring out they need to fall in line... icon_lol.gif Here's the output:

    This is probably because it needs CDP to determine whether it should deliver power to the connected port. Pretty cool though icon_cool.gif

    CDP has been licensed to other vendors, my HP switches show up as CDP neighbors (which is a problem because I bought them so the students wouldn't see them in the lab topology). With phones the voice VLAN is typically advertised with CDP as well as the power requirements and QoS marking and trust states (if the phone has an integrated switch)
    The only easy day was yesterday!
