Tagging vlan

Tagging vlan

Tagging vlan

Why and why not tagged?
when and when not to tag?
how do i tag and untag?

RE: Tagging vlan

Tagged ports tend to be on trunk ports carrying more than 1 vlan or/and between switches.

Untagged ports are generally used for ports that have end user devices on them such as pc's, printers etc.

Though this can change if you have VoIP phones running where you tend to tag the ports but this also depends on what the switch software is capable of doing in regards to voice vlans etc.

without know what software you are using its not easy to tell you how to tag/untag a port.

I suggest if you are new to switching then you should get some books to read and/or go on training courses.

RE: Tagging vlan

i'm using 3com 4500 (probably default firmware)

i created 2 vlan; vlan 2 & 3.

the switch is 50 ports

port 1 to 8 is on vlan 2, 9 to 16 is on vlan 3

port 24 is the trunk port for vlan 2 & 3

which book you would suggest me to read?
