VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) is a technology that can solve broadcasting issues. A LAN can be divided into several VLANs logically, and only the hosts in a same VLAN can communicate with each other.

Here is a configuration example for 802.1Q VLAN.

Network Topology:

Network Requirement:

  • Hosts in the same department can communicate with each other.
  • Hosts in different departments cannot communicate with each other.
  • Both department A and department B can visit the FTP server.

Configuration Scheme:

  • Create VLAN 10 and VLAN 20 for department A and department B respectively.
  • Create VLAN 30 for the FTP server, and add the hosts in department A and department B to VLAN 30.
  • Configure PVIDs for ports. With correct PVID settings, both department A and department B can visit the FTP server, but cannot communicate with each other.

Step 2

Go to L2 Features > VLAN > 802.1Q VLAN > Port Config, set the PVID value as 1, 10, 20 for port 1, port 2 and port 3 respectively.

Configurations on Switch 2:

Step 1

Go to L2 Features > VLAN > 802.1Q VLAN > VLAN Config, create VLAN 10, VLAN 20 and VLAN 30; add Untagged port 2, Untagged port 4 and Tagged port 1 to VLAN 10; add Untagged port 3, Untagged port 4 and Tagged port 1 to VLAN 20; add Untagged port 2-4 to VLAN 30 and Tagged port 1 to VLAN 30.

Step 2
