Switch Buddy is compatible with a wide range of switches. Most managed switches will be usable with Switch Buddy as long as they implement some or all of the following RFC’s:
- RFC 1213 – Management Information Base for Network Management of TCP/IP based internets: MIB-II
- RFC 1286, 1493 – Definitions of Managed Objects for Bridges
- RFC 1155, 1156, 1157, 1441-1452 – SNMP related RFC’s
If you would like to test your switch for compatibility before purchasing please download the Compatibility Test tool from the Downloads page.
The following table is based on actual test results both performed directly during Switch Buddy development or the Compatibility Tester’s submitted results.
