I'll check it again, it's became difficult to talk to tech support from 
Alcatel, in the mean time they've told me that i'll need some sort of license 
to support vlan assignment, i think they call it "Authenticated VLAN", even 
more, they've suggested me another radius server "Steel-Belted Radius" from 
Funk Software which now happens to be part of Juniper, disgusting ... , i'm 
reluclant to use it, i'm starting to learn a lot with freeradius, and won't 
change it.

If it's true, i wonder why this brand (and model) of switch, been so 
expensive, needs an extra license to do something which is free with others 
(cisco, 3com, etc ) ?

Well i'm dissappointed, maybe someone from Alcatel could give me a better 

Best regards to all of you.
