Tech Tips: RocketLinx VLAN web interface configuration

VLAN Configuration

You can use the following steps to configure a VLAN with RocketLinx managed switches:

            • Create a VLAN
            • Add a port as a member of a VLAN
            • Configuring VLAN ports
            • Removing a VLAN

Note: Although the images in this document illustrate an ES7510-XT, this procedure is the same on all RocketLinx managed switches.

Creating a VLAN

Use the following steps to create a VLAN.

  1. Open your web browser, login, and access the VLAN Configuration page.VLAN
  2. Under the Static VLANsection:
    • Static ES7510-XT VLAN ConfigurationEnter the desired VLAN ID (1-4094).
    • Enter the VLAN Name, which is a string that cannot include spaces. If you do not enter a VLAN name a VLAN name is assigned, for example, VLAN2.
    • Click Add.

    The new VLAN appears in the Static VLAN section after clicking the Add button as highlighted in the next image.

  3. Click the Apply button in the Static VLAN Configuration section to apply changes.  Make sure you Save the changes before exiting the web page if you want a permanent change.ES7510-XT VLAN Configuration
  4. To add ports to the new VLANs, go to the next procedure.

Adding a Port as a Member to a VLAN

The Static VLAN Configuration table lists each VLAN with a drop-down box for each port on the switch.

Each drop-down box has the options of U for untagged, T for tagged, and a dashed line that denotes the port is not a member of that VLAN.Static VLAN Configuration

    • Untagged ports do not attach VLAN tags to packets.  Packets tagged for a particular VLAN are forwarded to all ports that are untagged members of that VLAN. Therefore any ports that are connected to devices that are not VLAN aware (almost all devices with the exception of networking devices such as switches and access points.)
    • Tagged ports attach VLAN tags to packets.  Tagged packets are forwarded to other VLAN aware devices (for example, switches). Switches that receive tagged packets for a VLAN forward those packets to any of its ports that are untagged members of that VLAN.Static VLAN Configuration

Use this procedure to add a port to a VLAN.

  1. If you have not done so, navigate to the VLAN Configuration page.
  2. To add an untagged port to a VLAN, set the drop-down box for that port and VLAN to U.  The following image shows Port 1 being added as an untagged port to the VLAN named Quad_2.
  3. Click the Apply button or optionally configure additional ports before clicking the Apply button.VLAN Configuration
  4. Static VLAN ConfigurationTo add a tagged port to a VLAN, set the drop-down box for that port VLAN to T. The following image shows Port 2 being added as a tagged port to a VLAN named Quad_2.
  5. Click the Apply button or optionally configure additional ports before clicking the Apply button.Apply VLAN Configuration
  6. Go to the next procedure to complete the process of setting up a VLAN.

Configure a Port for the VLAN

Use the following steps to configure a port for a VLAN.

  1. If necessary, open your web browser, login, and access the VLAN Port Configuration page.Configure a Port for the VLAN
  2. Config Save VLANDouble-click the existing PVID value for the port that you want to make a member, highlight the existing value and change the port PVID value to the VLAN.  This image shows adding Port 2 to the VLAN named Quad_2.
  3. Click the Apply button.
  4. Make sure that you Save the changes if you want the changes to be permanent.

Removing a VLAN

Use these steps to remove a VLAN.

  1. Open your web browser, login, and access the VLAN Configuration page.
  2. Highlight the VLAN in the Static VLAN Configuration table that you want to remove.
