Adding or changing a VLAN port assignment (Menu)

Ports not assigned to a VLAN are automatically in the default VLAN.

  1. From the Main Menu select: 2. Switch Configuration —> 8. VLAN Menu … —> 3. VLAN Port Assignment

    You will see a screen similar to the following:

    Port-based VLAN port assignment screen in the menu interface

    The "VLAN Port Assignment" screen displays up to 32 static, port-based VLANs in ascending order, by VID. If the switch configuration includes more than 32 such VLANs, use the following CLI command to list data on VLANs having VIDs numbered sequentially higher than the first 32.

    show vlans [ <VID> | ports [ <port-list> ]]
  2. To change a port's VLAN assignment:
    1. Press E (for Edit).

    2. Use the arrow keys to select a VLAN assignment you want to change.

    3. Press the Space bar to make your assignment selection (No, Tagged, Untagged , or Forbid).

    4. If you are finished assigning ports to VLANs, press Enter and then S (for Save) to activate the changes and return to the Configuration menu. (The console then returns to the VLAN menu.)

  3. Return to the Main menu.

    For GVRP Operation: If you enable GVRP on the switch, No converts to Auto, which allows the VLAN to dynamically join an advertised VLAN that has the same VID.

    Untagged VLANs: Only one untagged VLAN is allowed per port.

    Also, there must be at least one VLAN assigned to each port.

    In the factory default configuration, all ports are assigned to the default VLAN (DEFAULT_VLAN).

For ports A4 and A5 to belong to both DEFAULT_VLAN and VLAN-22, and ports A6 and A7 to belong only to VLAN-22, use the settings in the example shown below. The default GVRP setting is disabled and it is assumed that you do not plan to enable GVRP later
