Freeware for Diagramming Network
« on: January 25, 2018, 02:26:21 PM »
Hello All,
I decided to map my local area network in order to better visualize it.
With a Google Search, I found the following page:  https://www.techrepublic.com/blog/five-apps/five-free-apps-for-diagramming-your-network/
I tried several of those products listed before settling on Gliffy Diagram; https://www.gliffy.com/diagram-software
This is an on-line only editor offering a 15 day free trial before you subscribe at $7.99/mo billed annually.

Since I only planned to map one network one time, I reasoned that I could avoid the steep subscription fee.
I found Gliffy Diagram to be intuitive, easy to use and responsive.  The trial version offers the user to share a link to his or her diagrams but has no provision for editing or storing off-line.
I simply made a screen capture of my work, modified it slightly in Photoshop Elements and then uploaded it to Costco Photo, ordering a 12"x20" print. 
I'm looking forward to picking the print up and seeing how well my geeky project turned out.

Here is a link to my effort:  https://go.gliffy.com/go/share/soyahcg4ptmbf5hge2ke
I suspect that the content will be removed after my 15 day trial expires so I have posted a permanent image at http://www.fullbean.com/network/network.jpg
