VLAN aware VM in Hyper-V 2008 R2

Hi experts,
I have a router software that runs on linux and is VLAN aware. Is there any way to pass thru all tagged traffic to that VM with just single VNIC?

12 virtual NICs is not enough for me.

Tagged traffic is passed by default. Nothing special needs to be done.

If so, Im doing something very bad. I have already running infrastructure with switches etc... Im trying to move physical router (on DELL PE R200 with one NIC to virtual) The software (Kerio Control) already supports Hyper-V.
On the VM with Kerio, there is one VMNIC, if I set the VLAN on the Virtual machine configuration, Im able to ping untagged interface of router - as expected. If I disable VLAN, I should ping the VLAN interface on KERIO, but I shouldnt. Its like Hyper-V is passing only untagged packets to the VM.

Even on Hyper-V 2012 it needs configuration that is not clickable:
"Set-VMNetworkAdapterVlan –VMName MyVM –Trunk –AllowedVlanIdList 1-100 –NativeVlanId 101"
