Usually the Phones are connected to the switchport and the workstations connects to the phone's internal switch. If that's the scenario (in most cases that is), then yes, the switchport needs to be configured for both DATA and VOICE VLAN. Else you cant differentiate the VOICE and DATA frames/packets and give voice traffic special treatment.

The switchport needs to be configured as ACCESS port with both the VLANs.

We are doing it for about 300+ IP phones connected in 8 sites and its going good for last 3 years with no issues.

Thats the way it works and everyone does it.

Absolutely.  To do otherwise would require twice as many switch ports.

Hi,

I was just testing around the performance.

I have 2 vlans

Vlan 2 and Vlan 4

I am using Grandstream GXV3140 Telephone. It has two ports. I connected the telephone lan port to cisco switch and other port to PC

Switch configuration.

interface gigaethernet 0/1
switcport mode access
switchport access vlan 2
switchport voice vlan 4

I configured the IP addressing on Telephone and PC.

My problem I am unable to ping to Telephone and but I can ping to PC.

Any help please.

Thanks

From where are you pinging, I believe from VLAN2 to the VLAN4 telephone.

Is there InterVLAN routing between VLAN2 and VLAN4? Please check, otherwise it wont communicate.

Inter-Vlan Routing absolutely working fine No issues with it.

I tried pinging from 2 vlan 4 and also from other vlans but no luck.

To make sure I connected laptop device to vlan 2 and tried to other devices in lan it working.

Thanks

Please configure a port on VLAN 4 only, and connect your laptop on that port. Make sure the IP addresses falls within the Vlan4 telephone and try to ping.

Or is the Grandstream phones configured not to reply to ping? Could you please check.

You are using VLAN ID 4 for Voice. So, have you changed VLAN Tag value from 0 to 4 on phone? Probably, that could make the difference. (my guess)

Sounds like the phone is configured/designed not to respond to ping requests.

There definitely is something to do with the InterVLAN routing, as you could ping from within VLAN4.

Please check.

I configured the port for only vlan 4 then I connected the phone to the port.

I can ping to phone for all other vlans.

Can you give the output "show vlan".
It could be the switchport doesnt support ACCESS port MultiVLAN.
