    Does anyone know the difference the 2 features?
    Or where to find it out?

    The 2nd one is supported by the Catalyst 4500.

    TIA,

    Alex.

    OK, "lite" refers to non-MPLS.
    And VRF is a super-set of VRF-lite.
    I have seen so far that more features has been added to VFR by time from older release of IOS: for instance "DHCP server
    per VRF" and one by one a lot of other features (not strictly related to routing). So "lite" doesn't constrain this new
    features but MPLS environment, does it?

    Thank you Walter, your answer are always appreciated.

    Alex.
