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?
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?

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
