Configure VLAN Interface Settings on 200/300 Managed Switches
This article explains the configuration of VLAN interface settings on the 200/300
Managed switches. A VLAN is a group of ports that enables devices associated with it to communicate between each
other over the Ethernet MAC layer, regardless of the physical LAN of the network to which they are
connected. VLAN interface settings are used to set the interface of the switch to which the parameters are
• 200/300 Series Managed Switches
Step 1. Log in to the web configuration utility and choose VLAN
Management > Interface Settings. The Interface Settings page opens:
Step 2 . Choose an interface from the Interface Type drop-down list.
Step 3. Click Go to bring up a list of ports or LAGs on the interface
Step 4. Click the radio button of the port or LAG you want to modify and click
Edit. The Edit window appears:
Step 5. Click the radio button that corresponds to the desired interface in the
• Port — From the Port drop-down list choose the port to configure. This will only
affect the single port chosen.
• Lag — From the LAG drop-down list choose the LAG to configure. This will affect the
group of ports defined in the LAG configuration.
Step 6. Click the Interface VLAN Mode radio buttons to choose the
mode of the interface.
• General — General mode is more flexible. It can transmit tagged
or untagged packets in the selected VLANs.
• Access — Specify the VLAN traffic carried by the access mode interface. The
access mode port only sends and accepts untagged frames on the specific VLAN.
• Trunk — Designed to connect 2 switches. Carries both untagged packets
and tagged packets.
• Customer — The switch interface will be in Q-in-Q mode when customer has one or more
ports. Enables the user to use their own VLAN arrangements across the provider network.
Step 7. Enter the administrative PVID value in the Administrative PVID field.
This is the Port VLAN ID (PVID) of a VLAN to which the untagged or priority tagged frames are given a value
to identify. It has a range from 1 - 4094.
Step 8. The Frame Type fields are enabled only when you click the General
Mode from Step 6. It differentiates which frame is to be recieved or discarded.
• Admit All — Accepts all types of frames like untagged frames or tagged frames or
priority tagged frames.
• Admit Tagged Only — Accepts only tagged frames.
• Admit Untagged Only — Accepts only untagged and priority frames.
Step 9. The Ingress Filtering fields are enabled only when you click the
General Mode from Step 6. Check Enable under the Ingress Filtering field to enable
Ingress Filtering. It discards all the incoming frames to that interface which are not the member of
