SYNOPSIS

vpmsd [-d] [-a address] [-f file] [-l level] [-p port]

DESCRIPTION

vmpsd is a GPL implementation of Cisco’s VMPS server. It allows for dynamic VLAN creation based upon MAC address, and is particularly helpful in smaller environments where a Cisco VMPS server is not available or feasible.

Since Cisco has not released documentation for this protocol, vmpsd was based entirely on watching traffic between Cisco VMPS servers and clients. As such, it is not warranted to be complete or bug-free. Despite this issue, vmpsd is suitable for use in production environments, as it has proven to be stable on large networks for long periods of time.

OPTIONS

-a bind address
  IP address to bind vmpsd to. Requests from clients must come in on this address.
-d Causes vmpsd to stay in the foreground instead of detaching as a daemon. Also logs to stderr.
-f config file
  Specify the configuration file that vmpsd will use. The program will fail without this option, as currently there is no default set.
-l log level
  Set the log level vmpsd will use. Options are:
o 0x0100 -- fatal errors only
o 0x0200 -- informational messages
o 0x0400 -- print warnings
o 0x0800 -- print debug messages; very verbose
o 0x0001 -- system
o 0x0002 -- parser
o 0x0004 -- vqp
-p listener port
  Port vmpsd will listen on. Defaults to 1589.
