IP Fabric will attempt to connect to the default gateway of the VM and any provided Seed IP Addresses. Once connected to a device, IP Fabric will fingerprint the vendor, model, and version, and adjust accordingly to run the necessary commands. You can read more about discovery process at How Discovery Works.

After the discovery is completed, all of the state data is available and you can start exploring IP Fabric GUI.

Enjoy using IP Fabric!
