Dynamic Vlans

Greetings,

we have a small switching environment. Only two 3500Xls and a 3550. We would like to configure some sort of dynamic vlan membership based on MAC address. It seems that VMPS Command can only be implemented on a larger switch. Is there a way of doing this (dynamic VLANs) in a small environment such as ours?

any thoughts are welcome -

thanks,

William

Re: Dynamic Vlans

you can configure your system with external vmps server:

vmps serve a.a.a.a

Don't forget to remove interface fasthetnet on dynamic vlan .

intefast 0/1

switchport access vlan dynamic

please, don't forget to rate this post.

Re: Dynamic Vlans

stephtchoko,

thanks for your response. I do understand how to configure the VMPS server, unfortunately in my environment we have no switch which can act as a VMPS Command switch (which acts as the VMPS server to the VMPS client switches). My actual question is whether anyone has suggestions as to how I could implement a dynamic vlan solution in this environment with only these three switches perhaps using radius or some sort of third party tool. any ideas anyone?

thanks,

William

Re: Dynamic Vlans

Mahmood,

thanks for your response. actually according to this document

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/customer/tech/tk389/tk689/technologies_tech_note09186a00800c4548.shtml

VMPS Command support is also available with the 4000/5000 series catalysts.

thanks,

William
