Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version: 4.0.3 Build 20190227 Rel.48206

Hello,

 

I am trying to configure a VLAN on the TL-R600VPN. I think I got the VLAN configured correctly, but how can I get traffic to pass between the VLAN and my main LAN? Do I do this via a firewall rule? Thanks

Hi ice 2921

 

If you mean that you set up multiple VLANs for the LAN ports, the traffic cannot pass between the VLAN. Because R600VPN cannot set up L3 interface for different VLAN so cannot support inter-VLAN routing. 

Generally if you want different VLAN can access each other, the devices need to support L3 interface to achieve inter-VLAN routing, to make the data pass between the VLAN through Layer 3.

So whats the point of setting VLANS on the r600? Is it only to pass VLAN traffic. So i would need a layer 3 switch as well?

So why is there VLAN configuration options? Is it just so the device can pass vlan traffic. Does this mean i need to get a layer 3 switch?

The devices having 802.1Q VLAN doesn't mean that it will support inter-VLAN routing. Inter-VLAN routing(VLAN interface) is Layer3 feature and 802.1Q VLAN is Layer2 feature.

 

Now you need a L3 switch if you want different VLAN can access each other. 

 

Or maybe you can try the following configuration.

Suppose that port 3-5 is LAN port.

Port 3: VLAN 2,4 PVID-2

Port 4: VLAN 3,4 PVID-3

Port 5: VLAN 2,3,4 PVID-4

In these configuration, port 3 and port 4 cannot access each other, but port 3 and port 4 both can access port 5.

Hi Andone,

 

Followup this thread, i have L3 switch which support inter-vlan. Now, i have 3 vlan's and able to communicate each other (able to ping). but when i connecting my tl-r600vpn router to switch, there is no internet connections on the client pc's.

 

Note: my current setup, our modem/router has default gateway 192.168.254.254 connected to tl-r600vpn to port1 (wan1) from there port3 is connected to switch at port 27 which is uplink port. I followed the configurations on your website but still no internet connections. 

 

thank you,
