Can you use a static IP network addressing scheme (no dhcp) with a NAC solution?  It was my understanding that NAC works best with DHCP

Is that true?  Anyone today using a static IP network with DHCP?



Software/Hardware used:
Windows 2003, 2008, XP, 7, Cisco routers, Extreme Switches

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The reason NAC works well with DHCP is that DHCP is a broadcast protocol so the NAC appliance/system can see this traffic immediately on the network before a client becomes active. See this <a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Admission_Control”>Wikipedia article on NAC</a> for more information.
