CDP (Cisco Discovery Protocol) is a layer 2 protocol developped by Cisco to exchange information between directly connected network devices such as switches and routers. It runs on HP and Cisco devices.

It can be useful in a Cisco network environment to activate the Linux CDP support on Vyatta to let it share information with the other Cisco devices.

To activate CDP on Vyatta, you must first access the Vyatta Debian Linux platform with the root user (the default password is "vyatta") and then follow the CDP tutorial to get full information about the CDP protocol and how to install the "cdp-tools" program.
