Hello Netview-folks around the planet,

we are driving a Netview 5.1.2 /Optivity 8.1.1/AIX4.3.2-platform on our
neverstopping IBM C10 from 1990 with installed WEB-Server for our Operating
using Internet-Explorer 5.00. The machine is also used as primary
and Distributed Sniffer-Analyzer-machine.

To isolate problems faster, I'm looking for a tool that identifies the vendor of
a network interface card based on the first 3 bytes of the worldwide unique
vendor-code within the MAC-address.
Our Sniffer-system show some but not all actual ones.

Does anyone know of a tool for AIX or NT with that function ?
Is there a database or a function within Netview or Optivity ?
I also assume that there must be a RFC that shows this information.

Thanks for help in advance.
