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.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
