What is Option 176, L2Q=1 for?

What is Option 176, L2Q=1 for?

What is Option 176, L2Q=1 for?

Can someone tell me waht the L2Q=1 parameter is for?

I can't find it in the Lan Admin Guide.

RE: What is Option 176, L2Q=1 for?

● L2Q: setting the 802.1Q framing parameter (1=ON, 2=OFF, or 0=AUTO. The default is 0.)
You can manually set a specific 4600 IP Telephone's L2Q value to any value other than
AUTO, for example to ON or OFF. However, the telephone uses that manual value rather
than any value administered via the DHCP or TFTP/HTTP settings file. To use the QoS
Local Administrative Option to set L2Q manually see the 4600 Series IP Telephone
Installation Guide.
● L2QVLAN: setting the VLAN ID on which the telephone should operate. For example,
what VLAN ID to use for DHCP Discovery, etc. (up to 4 digits, from 0 to 4094, default is 0).
● VLANTEST: setting the number of seconds to wait for a DHCPOFFER when using a
non--zero VLAN ID (up to 3 digits, from 0 to 999, default is 60).


It works! Now if only I could remember what I did...

Thanks.  I was looking at an old LAN Admin Guide.
