PowerConnect 55xx VLAN Configuration

Setup as follows:

1x Dell PowerConnect 5500 series switch.  Port 1 is untagged VLAN1 to the router.  Port 2 needs to be tagged only receiving a trunk port connection from another provider's equipment.  Ports 3-48 should have VLAN 1 untagged and VLAN 50 tagged.

The issue is only VLAN 1 untagged data is traversing ports 3-48, no VLAN 50 tagged traffic.  Already verified that the cables plugged into ports 1 and 2 are receiving their respective traffic.  Issue appears to be configuration in the switch.

These are for Cisco phones, we have created the LLDP policies but are unable to see VLAN 50 tagged for the Voice VLAN at the phones when plugged into the Dell switch.  I have assigned the ports as follows:

Port 1: Access VLAN 1 default/pvid
Port 2: Trunk VLAN 50
Ports 3-48: General VLAN 1 Untagged // VLAN 50 Tagged

In the VLAN Port management we are unable to simply click the grid of U/T/F buttons and specify them on the VLANs.  Have to do it manually.

Not quite sure where to go from here?

If I'm not mistaken you may need to configure these through the CLI (console ) I find the Gui somewhat limited.
