Are Port based VLAN devices designed to work with tag based VLANs ? I am trying to figure out if I can use an AP which supports tag based VLANs with a port based VLAN. All documents I found though the web were implementations and not specs. I have a few basic questions: If I have switch with the following Port based VLAN configuration: Ports | VLAN ID1,5 1 2,5 2 3,5 3 4,5 4
- Then an host on port 1 can only communicate with port 5 ? and port 2 with port 5 and so on ?
- Should the switch be inserting the appropriate vlan tag on the outgoing frame on port 5 ? Eg: a VLAN tag of 1 on a packet from port 1 to port 5.
- Should the switch be expecting a VLAN tag on any inbound frame on port 5 ?
Any information would be appreciated.
