Which VLAN should be used for the Native VLAN on a 802.1q Trunk
Posted on 2005-04-14
I will be setting up a 802.1q trunk between a c5500 and a c2924. Right now the link between the two switches is not trunked. All ports on the c2924 are on VLAN 1. The port on the 5500 is on vlan 134. I need to setup a trunk so that I can add two VLANS to the c2924. Most of the ports will be on VLAN 134. Should I make VLAN 134 the native vlan for the trunk since that traffic won't be tagged, or should I place both sides of the trunk on VLAN 1? If I make VLAN 134 the native VLAN what needs to be done to make it the management VLAN?
