    Recently I have made some changes to my university's wireless Access
    Points, We have used Cisco's IOS Migration tool to get VXWorks off of
    all our AP's. Although the software upgrade works great, I miss a
    feature.

    On the VXWorks OS you used to be able to see how many clients were
    connected to all Cisco AP's across my network... Now either i cannot
    find that feature, or it is non existant.

    Is anyone aware of such a feature for Cisco AP's or is there a
    software tool that i can use that uses CDP to see how many people are
    connected to my AP's?

    Thanks

    IOS APs don't have the feature that allows them to show clients associated
    to other APs. The suggested solution is to use a network management
    station.

    unless the NMS works by magic, it is pulling info from the AP?

    so - maybe the answer is - the AP has the info, but you cant get at it from
    the web front end.

    Thats kind of what i am thinking... I wish there was a way for me to
    pull that info. If any one has any suggestions, please let me know.

    if the NMS is pulling info, then it is probably via SNMP - get hold of a
    standard package and see what a MIB walk shows.

    Castle Rock SNMPc is pretty good - but you would have to pay for it.

    It's pulling the info from *all* the APs.
