Hi imn trying to understand how I can set up a simple VLAN'd envirnonet. I have an intel NUC running esxi and a DLINK managed switch

In my Esx environment i have a single vswitch0 which has the managment network as well as another virtual machine port group called VLANtest with a vlan ID of 601

I have a switch which has port one connected to the physical nic of vswitch0. it is configured with a PVID of 1 and is a Tagged member of 601
I have the second port of my physical switch untagged on vlan 601, this port is plugged into my laptop

My laptop and a vm guest which is connected to the VLANtest port group are on the same IP subnet, yet they cannot ping each other.

My hope is to get to a point where i can have two vms on the nuc, seperated by vlan and mapping to individual ports on the dlink switch.
I was thinking the physical switch config would need to be something like this

T-Tagged, U-Untagged
VLAN ID 601  1-T , 2U
VLAN ID 602  1-T, 3U

Port 1 would connect to my esxi server, 2,3 to machines requiring access to the respective vlans.  

Any guidance appreciated.
