i have installed a pfSense machine along with 3 NIC's: 1xWAN 1xLAN(Intel Desktop Pro 100S) and 1xOPT, now i'm trying to configure some VLAN's on the LAN interface, which is connected to a c3560 switch in access port.
Whcih settings should i set on the pfSense in order to work with VLAN's?
I'm adding the corresponding VLAN's under Interfaces: Assign->VLANs then under interface assignments i'm attach the VLAN's to the LAN NIC (fxp0) and press save….then i'm loosing connection to te pfSense!
Where do i wrong? should i change to port on the switch for trunk mode?
Thx in advance!
Yes you have to configure your switch port in trunk mode with the following commands:
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q switchport mode trunk

You will want to use each interface for either direct communications with own IP OR with VLANs.
Don't use both on the same IF!
