Hi,

Does someone know the maximum numbers of nodes that are allowed in a vlan according to cisco? Are the white papers?

The maximum size of the broadcast domain.

Hi,

I read somewhere that hosts per vlan should be like this...

1000 for "well behaved IP" -- hosts that just do ARPs, DHCP, etc. but no broadcast applications

500 for general IP with rational broadcast/multicast applications

200-500 for Apple, DECnet, CLNP -- assuming that hosts on the network

200 for NetBEUI

Rate it if it helps..!!!
