USB Version of the Managed Switch Port Mapper

We have offered NetScanTools Pro as a fully portable application running from a USB Flash Drive since 2006 and now the Managed Switch Port Mapping Tool has joined it.

The Switch Port Mapper can now run from a USB Flash Drive using a special compiled version. It retains all the same features as the 'installed' version yet now is fully portable so that you can run it on any Windows XP or later machine that offers a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port. Simply plug in the flash drive, navigate to the executable and start it. And it doesn't require 'Run as administrator'!

We are shipping it on a fast USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) 16 GB flash drive and for those who already have their own fast flash drive, we can supply a fileset that you can put on it yourself with assistance from our tech support.

The advantages of having the Switch Port Mapper on a USB Flash Drive - not requiring installation - are immense. Network Techs can take it to offsite locations and quickly map a switch.

As far as we know, we are the ONLY company offering Switch Port Mapping software both as fully portable USB flash drive software and as installed on a Windows computer.
