Configuring vlanpcp on pfSense 2.2
I am trying to configure pfSense 2.2 with vlanpcp so I can talk to my ISP. I have searched and seen a few posts on this forum where users are mainly using a switch to do the VLAN tagging and 802.1p.
I was wondering if pfSense could do that all by itself by using the vlanpcp option.
I was able to get a DHCP lease from my ISP by just tagging the WAN interface on VLAN 2. Unfortunately, I can't find an option to set the vlanpcp.
My setup is as follows:
ISP –-> tagged VLAN2 and 802.1p = 2 ---> pfSense (WAN,re2)
I have tried the following from a shell:
# ifconfig re2_vlan2 vlan 2 vlandev re2 vlanpcp 2
This sets the vlanpcp correctly to 2 but for some reason also sets the vlan to 16386 (not to 2 as per the command)
I am not sure why.
Trying to reset the interface with the command below afterwards results in
# ifconfig re2_vlan2 vlan 2 vlandev re2 ifconfig: SIOCSETVLAN: Device busy
Any ideas how I can set 802.1p settings and what I could be doing wrong?
Thanks much for any help.
i found a relevant thread for pfSense 2.1.5 …. not sure if this still applies (i would take a config backup first)
you can enter the values in System: Advanced: System Tunables
Thanks so much for your reply heper. I am going to try that out and let you know if it works.
