NAME
       vmpsd - Open Source Cisco VMPS Server

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 dy-
       namic 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.   De-
       spite 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.
