Hello,

 

I have pfsense firewall. and I configure 4 VLANs on it. As mentioned below. Also, I have purchased TP-Link T1600G-28PS managed switch. 

=================

VLAN10 >> 10.10.10.0

VLAN 20 >> 10.10.20.0

VLAN30 >> 10.10.30.0

VLAN50 >> 10.0.0.0

=================

 

Question: I have created 4 VLANs on my PFsense and configured DHCP on it (on a single interface). I have connected it to switch. and I want to provide VLAN 10 to all my Management devices. VLAN20 to VMs which is hosted on Management ESXI Node. and VLAN30 & VLAN 50 to wireless clients. But on the switch, I am not able to see the trunk port option, 

 

Is anyone have any idea about it how to configure it on the T1600G-28PS switch?

No, there is no trunk port option on the T1600 switches anymore. But we can simply specify the port as Tagged Ports when adding it to the corresponding VLAN to achieve the Trunk feature. This configuration example for 802.1Q VLAN may help you better.

 

Best regards!

Best Regards!
