I'm lost (openwrt + pfsense) VLAN help!!!



  • Hardware
    – pfsense
    -- HP Procurve switch 
    -- TP-Link TL-WR1043ND

    VLANs

    1 - unused but  I didn't delete
    9 - only for hardware pfsense router etc)
    12 - business
    15 - public

    Everything seems to be working.. I can plug cables into ports designated for each VLAN from the switch and computer gets the proper IP and DNS server for each VLAN. So I don't think firewall rules's the issue but to double check I changed VLAN 5 and VLAN 6 to a "allow all"

    The switch portion, for each VLAN I untagged ports I wanted to use for that VLAN, tagged the pfsense gateway port and turned the rest off.  For example if I wanted to use ports 1 - 5 for VLAN 9 with port #3 being the gateway. 3 is tagged, 1-4 & 5 are untagged, remaining are turned off.

    BUT I can't figure out the openwrt router . For example trying to get VLAN 12 working I tried

    1. Make a interface for port 2 on the router (eth0.2) - set it to static IP pointing to VLAN 12 gateway
    2. Go to switch subsection and modify VLAN 2 so Port 1-4 is off leaving port 2 as untagged (since the port that connects router port #2 to the switch is untagged) ? And later if I wanted wireless tag the cpu?
    3. Remove all firewall settings
    4. Remove all DHCP options

    The only one I think is sort of working is VLAN 4... I got it to work by leaving port 4 on VLAN 1 and with a dumb switch it will hand out VLAN 4 DHCP server settings.

    Any help?

    Thanks

    Totally confusing when you say "VLAN 4" and there's no VLAN 4 in your list.  Impossible to know what you're saying.

    Will read!

    I meant from OpenWRT switch screen which looks like this http://i.stack.imgur.com/Rpel5.png. Under VLAN ID it's set at 1 but the port is connected to the VLAN 4 ports on the switch but works…So is VLAN ID important on the router side ?

    No idea what OpenWRT even looks like.  This isn't an OpenWRT forum.
