"The other day I was speaking to a buddy of mine. I asked him how cool would it be, if you could just get the port on a switch that you are plugged into, in one line? So since I thought about it... I figured why not.... I just finished writing the first revision ( I'm assuming more to come). I must say that I am quite pleased with it. Right now you can pass the switch you want to talk too, the community string, and either the MAC or IP address of the host device. In return you will get the MAC Address, IP Address, Port Description (VLAN), and Port you are plugged into."
