Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) Responder for WinServer 2003

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Synapse Syndrome, Nov 28, 2006.

  1. I was reading a Vista site that mentioned this LLTD service for XP machines
    that allows you to see them in the Vista Network Map.

    It doesn't seem to do a hell of a lot, but this could result in a pretty
    interesting map for me, as my server has dual NICs, for LAN and WAN, and my
    main desktop provides an onboard WAP for wi-fi. There is also a secondary
    gigabit LAN between my server and two main machines.

    Well, it would be interesting if there was a LLTD service for Windows Server
    2003 as well, but I can't find it anywhere. Anybody?

  2. No LLTD responder is planned for Server 2003. It will, however, be in
    integral to Longhorn Server. You will continue to see the Servers (prior to
    Longhorn Server) in the lower portion of the screen. It also appears that
    it will be integral to XP x86 with SP3, but I have not heard if that
    decision is final. Last I heard it is not available for XP x64.

  3. Oh, that's a shame. How do you know this?

  4. I don't like to install unsupported software on my super-stable server, but
    as I have recently reimaged the C: drive, I just tried. No, error with the
    ..inf file reported.

  5. From a chat with the team. That was two or three months ago. TechBeta had
    a Feature Focus week on LLTD.
