The haneWIN LLDP software implements a LLDP Agent based on the IEEE 802.1AB
standard for the Link Layer Discovery Protocol.
A native LLDP Agent service is implemented for Windows XP/VISTA/20xx/7/8/10.
A Control Panel Applet provides interactive access to the service.
The LLDP MIB is implemented as SNMP MIB subagent for the Windows SNMP agent.
Optionally the software can read and send CDP (Cisco Discovery Protocol)
version 1 and 2 packets. Infomation received from CDP packets is stored in the
LLDP MIB to present a consistent data base to SNMP management software.
The software is implemented as 32 and 64 Bit versions. Version is selected by the installer
depending on the OS.
The haneWIN LLDP Agent Software is Shareware.
You may test the software for 30 days without any obligation.
Any use of the software after the evaluation time requires a software license.
Registration details you will find in order.txt.
The Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) and Cisco discovery protocol are
protocols for discovering the physical topology in 802 LANs. LLDP uses multicast packets
to announce stations on LAN. CDP uses multicast packets in SNAP format. Adjacent stations
are discovered and stored by the LLDP agent for retrieval by a SNMP based
network management system.
Computer with Windows XP or higher.
- Installation of the LLDP Agent on Windows XP or higher
- Install the software by running the installer with administrator rights.
The setup software installs the LLDP protocol driver, the LLDP Agent and LLDP
MIB SNMP subagent. If a LLDP.INI configuration file is provided with the installer
the configuration is copied in the installtion directory.
- With the control panel applet haneWIN LLDP Agent
you can configure and monitor the service.
Only Administrators are allowed to start the applet. On systems with UAC active
you must start the applet by "Run as Administrator"
- Controlling the LLDP Agent Service on Windows XP and higher
The service is configured for automatic start on Windows startup.
The service can be started and stopped manually through the services
- You could install and start the LLDP Agent service manually
executing the command:
- To uninstall the LLDP service manually execute the command:
The command stops a running LLDP Agent service and removes the
LLDP Agent service from the services list.
The Info Box at startup of the control panel applet is displayed only for
The main window of the LLDP control panel displays the adjacent station and port IDs,
the name of the adjacent station and if available the IP address of the adjacent station.
observed by the server.
Clicking on the column header the list is sorted based on the column entries.
Using the right mouse button, you can remove an entry manually from the list.
For stations transmitting 802.1 and 802.3 extensions VlanId and Operational Mode of the
interface is evaluated.
Due to restrictions set by Windows the LLDP agent can not resolve the physical
mau type (twisted pair, fiber, ...) of an interface, only link speed and full/half duplex
operation is available.
Because LLDP 802.3 extensions combine these information in a single field, the
physical mau type is internally fixed to twisted pair.
- Sends a start or stop request for the LLDP service to
the service control manager.
- terminates the Control Panel Applet. It does not
stop the LLDP agent running as background service
The LLDP transmit interval defines how often LLDP multicasts are transmitted on the
LAN segment. The default is configured to every 30 seconds.
The LLDP hold multiplier defines how long transmitted LLDP packets are
valid in the database of adjacent stations receiving the packet.
It is defined in the form of a multiplier to the LLDP transmit interval.
CDP packet analysis is optional. It is enabled by default.
The LLDP agent can send CDP packets. By default CDP packets are send only
on those interfaces were a CDP packet was received before.

The user interface can be customized to other languages. Currently the
software is delivered with an English and German user interface.
