Help in Vlan-Interface


1. What it means by eth1.200? I know it is a subinterface, but did it means this interface will carry Vlan tag 200?

2. eth1.200, will any ip packets that going out this interface will be tagged with VLAN tag 200?

3. [eth1-----Trunk------Cisco Switch] it is the configuration same with
[eth1.300-----Trunk------Cisco Switch] ?

in a nutshell 1) yes, 2) yes, 3) no -- the Cisco port must be tagged w/ vlan 300.

to demo this for yourself:

sudo vconfig add eth0 52
sudo ifconfig eth0.52 10.0.2.1 netmask 255.255.255.0

ping -nq -c 20 10.0.2.10 &

sudo tcpdump -nc2 -i eth0 vlan
sudo tcpdump -nc2 -i eth0.52 arp

output from first tcpdump shows the vlan tag:
15:18:10.496264 vlan 52, p 0, arp who-has 10.0.2.10 tell 10.0.2.1
15:18:11.496300 vlan 52, p 0, arp who-has 10.0.2.10 tell 10.0.2.1

output from the second tcpdump shows the untagged arp pkts:
15:18:12.504295 arp who-has 10.0.2.10 tell 10.0.2.1
15:18:13.504298 arp who-has 10.0.2.10 tell 10.0.2.1
