Problem with VLAN on SG-3100



  • I have followed the guidelines here:

    https://www.netgate.com/docs/pfsense/solutions/sg-3100/switch-overview.html

    But I can't get the thing to do what I want. Which is of course my fault, not the thing's fault. As always computer errors are normally between themonitor and the keyboard. ;)

    Setup:
    Internal network on OP1, external networks on two of the ports on the built in 4 port switch, shared with neighbours.

    I would like to use the two other ports on that for my own purposes, one for a home automation network, and one for a VPN service with OpenVPN. So I followed the instructions and made my first ever VLAN, which means at the age of 52 I'm no more a VLAN virgin. But as with all cherry popping there are complications. Because the devices on the home atomation VLAN/port 4 that I first created, can't seem to get online. I have added and activated the DHCP server, and I have opened up for everything from the IPv4 with the Automatisering net as the source. DNS is set to all interfaces. I can ping back and forth to the OPT1 Iinternal) network.

    Also I sort of tought it would make more sense if the VLAN had the OPT1 as a parent interface, but that doesn't work at all, I even loose ping from OPT1 to the VLAN. Is that because the parent interface must be the physical interface?

    So any ideas what's going on here?

    Sorry your post slipped past us here. Were you able to get this configured correctly?

    If not can you post screenshots of your VLAN and switch config?

  • Yes, thanks. I went back to my backup before the changes, redid it from the start again and this time it worked. ☺
