Thru VTP prtocol

Hi,

Can we configure VTP protocol between Cisco Switches to Non-Cisco Switches i.e Juniper etc

I Knew VTP is a Cisco Propritary  but is there a way? , if there a provision to purchase a

 license from   Cisco to use VTP on their(Juniper)  devices

Where VTP is primarily for the propagation of the VLAN database (additions, modifications and deletions) to other switches.  Pruning VLANs from trunks is an optional feature,

GVRP and MVRP work a bit differently.  With these protocols, pruning VLANs from trunks is the primary function. Propagation of VLANs being added to the VLAN database is an optional feature. Key point is the only part of propagation of the VLAN database is adding VLANs. Modifications and deletions still have to be done on a switch by switch basis.

What is MVRP ( Multiple Registration Protocol) , is it functions like VTP .

I have studied inGoogle that it is open protcol for VLAN information with non cisco devices.

Can you pls confirm whether the protocol can we suggest to customer for VLAN information carrying to Non Cisco devices

There is no way you can use VTP on non-Cisco devices and I am afraid I have never heard of Cisco supporting MVRP

MVRP supports dynamic registration and deregistration of VLANs on ports in a VLAN bridged network
