Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in TCP/IP-based internets.
   In particular, it defines two MIB modules for managing the
   capabilities of MAC bridges defined by the IEEE 802.1D-1998 (TM) MAC
   Bridges and the IEEE 802.1Q-2003 (TM) Virtual LAN (VLAN) standards
   for bridging between Local Area Network (LAN) segments.  One MIB
   module defines objects for managing the 'Traffic Classes' and
   'Enhanced Multicast Filtering' components of IEEE 802.1D-1998 and
   P802.1t-2001 (TM).  The other MIB module defines objects for managing
   VLANs, as specified in IEEE 802.1Q-2003, P802.1u (TM), and P802.1v
   (TM).

   Provisions are made for support of transparent bridging.  Provisions
   are also made so that these objects apply to bridges connected by
   subnetworks other than LAN segments.

   This memo supplements RFC 4188 and obsoletes RFC 2674.
