Hi All,

I don't have too much experience with NAC deployment. I want to go with L3 (because we have central site), OOB (for LAN) and IB (for wireless and VPN). but I don't know whether I should go with real gateway or virtual gateway. I know virtual gateway is easier than real gateway. but technically, which way is more popular and provide better security measures?

any suggestion would be very appreciated.

If your remote subnets are multiple hops away, RIP would be the option you should use. They both are equally popular, but for L3 subnets which are remote, RIP is the most often used design
