Viewing Connected Endpoints

Connected Endpoints are identified by DHCP collector. By default, the DHCP collector is enabled in TerminAttr. You must enable it on VLANs where you would like to identify connected endpoints. See Enabling DHCP Collector.

Once it is enabled, the Connected Endpoints summary screen provides information on all connected endpoints. See Accessing the Connected Endpoints Summary Screen.

Enabling DHCP Collector

As of TerminAttr v.1.6.0, the ECO DHCP Collector is enabled by default and listens on 127.0.0.1:67 for UDP traffic. Add 127.0.0.1 as an IP helper address on VLANs to capture device identification.

switch(config)# interface vlan100
switch(config-if-Vl100)# ip helper-address dhcp_server_address
switch(config-if-Vl100)# ip helper-address 127.0.0.1
switch(config-if-Vl100)# exit
switch(config)# ip dhcp snooping
switch(config)# ip dhcp snooping information option
switch(config)# ip dhcp snooping vlan 100

Accessing the Connected Endpoints Summary Screen
