Advanced-VLAN Membership

The VLAN Membership screen lets you set the VLAN membership of each port. The screen functions differently for port-based VLANs than it does for IEEE 802.1Q VLANs.

IEEE 802.1Q VLAN Membership

Note: By default, every port is a member of VLAN 1, which has a port VLAN ID (PVID) of 1.

To configure VLAN membership for IEEE 802.1Q VLANs:

  1. Select Switching > VLAN > Basic > VLAN Membership. A screen similar to the following displays.
  2. Figure 4-9

  3. From the VLAN Identifier drop-down list, select the number that represents the VLAN you want to view or modify.
  4. You can either assign the same tag setting to or remove it from all ports in the VLAN in 3., or assign a tag setting to or remove it from each individual port in the VLAN in 4.. These steps are mutually exclusive.

  5. To assign the same tag setting to or remove it from all ports in the VLAN, toggle the check box to the left of Unit 1. The tag setting determines if packets that are transmitted from each port are tagged with the VLAN ID and other information. The possible tag settings are:
    • T. Specifies that the egress (outgoing) packet is tagged for all ports.
    • U. Specifies that the egress packet is untagged for all ports.
    • Empty. Specifies that none of the ports are part of the VLAN.
  6. To assign a tag setting to or remove it from an individual port in the VLAN:
    1. Click Unit 1. A screen similar to the following displays.
    2. Figure 4-10

    3. Assign a tag setting to or remove it from a port by toggling the check box under an individual port number. The tag settings determine if packets that are transmitted from the port are tagged with the VLAN ID and other information. The possible tag settings are:
      • T. Specifies that the egress packet is tagged for the port.
      • U. Specifies that the egress packet is untagged for the port.
      • Empty. Specifies that the port is not part of the VLAN.
  7. Click Apply to confirm any settings changes.

Port-Based VLAN Membership

To configure VLAN membership for port-based VLANs:

  1. Select Switching > VLAN > Advanced > VLAN Membership. A screen similar to the following displays.
  2. .

    Figure 4-11

  3. From the VLAN Identifier drop-down list, select the number that represents the VLAN you want to view or modify.
  4. You can either assign all ports to or remove them from the VLAN in 3., or assign individual ports to or remove them from the VLAN in 4.. These steps are mutually exclusive.

  5. To assign all ports to or remove them from the VLAN, select the check box to the left of Unit 1.
  6. To assign individual ports to or remove them from the VLAN:
    1. Click Unit 1. A screen similar to the following displays.
    2. Figure 4-12

    3. To assign a port to or remove it from the VLAN, select the check box under an individual port number.
  7. Click Apply to confirm any settings changes.

    Note: When the port-based VLAN type is configured, an ingress (incoming) packet with an IEEE 802.1Q tag is ignored and preserved.
