graphing a network topology? software?


hi u all,

I'm searching for weeks, but still I can't find what I need. Well,what I'm searching is a kind of software (linux based) which will help me to easily graph my network topology.

Does someone know such a software? I'll be very glad to receive some app names

you're looking for some sort of flow-chart type software. those have very similar functionality to
network diagrams.

i have seen that if you start a 'drawing' in Open Office, you can get some good functionality.

i think what he is looking for is something that will, 'scan' his network, and draw a graphical diagram, which shows the infrastructure of the network.

10x u guys, but I'm not searching for something to scan the network. I'm searching for an application to help me draw by hand (and mouse) the topology of my network.

I think this time I'm clearer.

So you're asking for a multimedia program?

GIMP - Photoshop alternative

Dia is similar to Visio. Should work for you

Dia will work in KDE as well, but there is a KDE-native application too:

10x mykrob,
I think kivio is a kind of program I was searching for. It's not the smartest thing I've done - not to check all native kde programs, but I've used not to install Koffice.

10x agian for the time you allocated to my post.

Just wanted to say thanks to all involved for the good thread - I've been searching for just a thing too. I too am guilty of not looking at the native KDE apps! Kivio looks like the thing I've been looking for!

Thanks again!
