Does anyone know if it is possible to create a trunk port between a VLAN enabled Opt (physical) port on a Protectli device connected directly to a VLAN enabled laptop NIC.   The Protectli is a purpose built device where I am running PFSENSE.

Below is the setup:

Protectli Opt3 port with VLAN20 and VLAN30 <==>  Laptop's Intel NIC with VLAN20 and VLAN30 and running VMWARE Workstation 11


My question is whether I will need a managed switch in order to set up a "trunked" port to the Opt3 PFSENSE port and a "trunked access port" for the laptop NIC, or is there some way to setup the Opt3 port on the PFSENSE device (Protectli) to act as a "trunked access port" thus allowing the trunk to work without needing a vlan enabled switch?  I'm trying to avoid having to purchase a VLAN enabled switch for this purpose. 

The scenario I am trying to avoid is shown below:

Protectli Opt3 port with VLAN20 and VLAN30 <==>  ((Trunked port) Switch (Trunked access port)) <==> Laptop's Intel NIC with VLAN20 and VLAN30 configured and running VMWARE Workstation 11

I'm also open to creative solutions such as using VyoS to simulate a trunked switch/bridged port if possible.

Any help is appreciated.
