    Network Mapping Software for SOHO

    I am looking for a replacement for Cisco's old Network Magic software. The scope and scale of that software was perfect for my SOHO operation (6 PCs, 4 Laptops, 4 mobile devices, printers, etc.). Sadly, Network Magic is no longer supported, and I haven't been able to find a suitable replacement. I am not a networking guy; I just know enough to keep my little network running, and Network Magic was perfect for finding the occasional conflicts.

    I liked the graphic map which Network Magic presented -- it helped me by showing what the device is, how it linked to the network, IP addresses, etc.

    Anyone have any suggestions for a suitable replacement?

    I was aware of that, but figured that 18 months' dead time from the last post merited another ask.

    Thanks much!

    OpManager is web-based network management software that monitors network devices and physical and virtual servers, alerts via email and SMS for fault. Monitor 25 devices for free with no restriction. Download now.

    I've removed links so that others can comment on whether this is a good thing or not. Note: I have no knowledge of networking!

    ManageEngine OpManager has been around for years, but I've not used it.
    There's also ZenOS and PRTG.
