Can someone please help me with VLAN setup?



  • Hi,

    i'am new to pfsense and also to VLANs so when i'am reading all the stuff about it it makes me almost cry :'(

    i've jut got HP T5720 terminal that comes with only one NIC and i wanted to make a firewall on it, i've read that this is possible with VLAN setup but really i don't get it :(

    i would like to make it to work like this:

    WAN –--> T5720 ----> WRT160NL ----> Switch ----> comps

    only thing that i know is that when T5720 comes with only one NIC it needs to be connected to WRT160NL, so lets say i would like to connect it to port 4 on Linksys..

    WAN ----> WRT160NL --port 4---> T5720
                          |
                          |
                          |
                          V
                      Switch

    so anyone can help me with setup VLAN on pfsense? i'll try to setup DDWRT WRT160NL when i see the setup on pfSense HP T5720



  • vlan's require a managed switch with support for vlan's …..

    it can not be done with cheap switches



  • but it's with DD-WRT firmware that is able to make VLANs



  • @maciejb84:

    Yes, but the switch has to be vlan-aware to know which port to forward traffic. Unless the whole switch should be apart of the same vlan I guess.



  • ok i'll figure it out how to set it on wrt160nl…

    but can someone help me and write down how to set it on pfsense?
