Show CDP Neighbors


This command lists the Cisco devices that are connected to your current device. CDP is a Cisco proprietary protocol and will only detect Cisco products, although there are some vendors that do work with it.
Additionally, LLDP was recently released, which is an industry standard of the Cisco Discovery Protocol and is supported on newer IOS.
