hey derelic, i have a question which arises from the approach to configure an VLAN on the tp-link easy smart switch 1016de
you wrote here :
2. tagged, or trunk port - traffic arriving on the port should be tagged with a configured VLAN else dropped. It's possible to configure a port to accept traffic for any VLAN. Traffic for a configured VLAN on the port is sent out with the VLAN tag intact (tagged). Traffic received for an unconfigured VLAN should be dropped.
and the tp-link has the option to set a pvid. what is this for?
i can not set a pvid for unexisiting vlans.
i must chose a port as tagged or untagged to create a vlan.
after that i can set a pvid to that port.
and what for?
i assume now, that as i additionaly to the creation of the vlan change the pvid on an port to the same vlan-number on this port, that all (unconfigured?) traffic (or for unconfigured vlans?) is _NOT_ dropped, but instead pushed into that vlan of the pvid-number.
The default pvid number on all ports is 1, which is the undeletable default-vlan for all ports..
my assumtion seems to make sense to me, but i am a real beginner with that vlan..
every help appreciated...(besides this thread is a great pleasure in explaining this new easy-smart switches. ...)
thanks for attention,
