Re: vmps question

Hello,

when the VMPS server is not available, the client will stay connected to the assigned VLAN until the next VMPS reconfirmation interval. VMPS reconfirmation occurs when the VMPS client asks the VMPS if the dynamic port assignments are

correct and the correct MAC addresses have been assigned to the correct ports. By default, this happens about every 60 minutes. So after a maximum of about 60 minutes the client port will go inactive.
