Sg-3100 Trunk Port



  • Good Afternoon,

    I'm fairly new to Netgate Hardware and using a GUI in general. I have a Sg-3100 and am looking for assistance in properly configuring one of the Lan ports to pass multiple Vlans. I would like to know how to do it via the webgui and cli if possible but if one can only give instructions on the webgui that will work for me as well. A few things that are confusing to me are do i need a static on the physical interface? or just the vlan sub interfaces and leave the physical interface none?

    Thanks in advance.

    You don't need to assign the parent interface (mvneta1) to use VLANs on top of it. Though you may want to if you want untagged traffic to pass through the switch completely.

    Setup the VLANs you need as interfaces and assign/enable them.

    Then in the switch config switch it to 802.1q mode and add the vlans you configured making sure they are set as tagged on the port(s) you want and tagged on port 5, the internal port.
