Setting up vLAN Switch


I bought a vLAN enabled switch its D-link Des-1226, now I'm facing problem making it work. Anybody have any experience with setting up vLAN on any D-link switch, or can give me some pointers as to how it is done. I'm very much confused with VID, PVID, trunk, untagged port, tag port. Can someone tell me when to use what option.

Welcome to advanced networking. VLANs allow you to segregate a switch into multiple, virtual LANs. (But you knew that :-). You need to configure each port on the switch to be part of a VID. Only ports that are configured with the same VID number can talk to each other. For example, if Port 1 is set for VID 1 and Ports 3 and 4 are set for VID 2, no traffic can flow between Port 1 and Ports 3 or 4 unless it is through a router. This is the 50,000 foot view and there is more to it, much you are going to need to sit down with the manual and try different configurations to see what will work for the way you want it set up.

Good luck.

The 1226 appears to be a dumb gig switch, no vlan's no nothing...

a pvid is a port vlan identifier, i.e. the vlan that a port is on. a vid is a vlan id, which is the vlan itself in abstract to a physical port.

well i don't know that device, but there's nothing "obviously" wrong with that at all. presumably you just need to use the separate firewall functionality on the box to filter it.

hi kool_kid,

i'm not too familiar with that linksys either - so forgive me

[edit]
ouch - i did not read the other firewalling part.
[/edit]

just dont give the vlan member stations (your PCs) a default gateway - or you can create firewall rule on the vyatta router.

HTH.

oh yeah, missed the vyatta bit... so that's the bit at "fault" then, but still there's no real problem here at all from what i see.
