Multiple VLans +300
I know how to configure VLans through the interface and bridge, there are some good examples I have seen.
My question is to see if a number of VLANS (+300 VLans) can be added in a more efficient/productive way, rather then by the Web GUI. I can easily generate the configuration separately and dump to a text file.
It would be easier to cut and paste configuration to a file etc, is this possible?
i would suggest something like backup/restore, download xml of vlans config than add what u need, and restore…
the file looks like this:
<vlans><vlan><if>fxp0</if> <tag>20</tag> <vlanif>fxp0_vlan20</vlanif></vlan> <vlan><if>fxp0</if> <tag>251</tag> <vlanif>fxp0_vlan251</vlanif></vlan> <vlan><if>fxp0</if> <tag>252</tag> <vlanif>fxp0_vlan252</vlanif></vlan> <vlan><if>fxp0</if> <tag>253</tag> <vlanif>fxp0_vlan253</vlanif></vlan></vlans>
I'll have a go on Thursday, but looks like a good alternative.
There used to be a feature that you could enter a vlan range on the interface and it will generate all of them.
Not sure if its still there need to check that.
Could not see that option there. Suggestion of editing XML file worked a treat, just used Excel to construct all the strings and pasted them in.
Also used this method for a couple of other things, such as interfaces for VLAN's, worked a treat and has save a LOT of time.
Menus are a little overloaded now though, wish there was a way to make them display/sort better!
