Configuring VLAN for a Wired Profile

 

If you are creating a new wired profile, complete the Wired Settings procedure before configuring VLAN. For more information, see Configuring Wired Settings.

You can configure VLAN using Instant UI or CLI.

In the Instant UI

To configure VLAN:

1. In the VLAN tab, enter the following information.
a. Mode — You can specify any of the following modes:
l Access — Select this mode to allow the port to carry a single VLAN specified as the native VLAN.
l Trunk — Select this mode to allow the port to carry packets for multiple VLANs specified as allowed VLANs.
b. Specify any of the following values for Client IP Assignment:
l Virtual Controller Assigned: Select this option to allow the Virtual Controller to assign IP addresses to the wired clients. When the Virtual Controller assignment is used, the source IP address is translated for all client traffic that goes through this interface. The Virtual Controller can also assign a guest VLAN to a wired client.
l Network Assigned: Select this option to allow the clients to receive an IP address from the network to which the Virtual Controller is connected. On selecting this option, the New button to create a VLAN is displayed. Create a new VLAN if required.
c. If the Trunk mode is selected:
l Specify the Allowed VLAN, enter a list of comma separated digits or ranges 1,2,5 or 1-4, or all. The Allowed VLAN refers to the VLANs carried by the port in Access mode.
l If Client IP Assignment is set the Network Assigned, specify a value for Native VLAN. A VLAN that does not have a VLAN ID tag in the frames is referred to as Native VLAN. You can specify a value within the range of 1-4093.
d. If the Access mode is selected:
l If the Client IP Assignment is set to Virtual Controller Assigned, proceed to step 2.
l If the Client IP Assignment is set the Network Assigned, specify a value for Access VLAN to indicate the VLAN carried by the port in the Access mode.
2. Click Next. The Security tab details are displayed.
3. Configure security settings for the wired profile. For more information, see Configuring Security Settings for a Wired Profile.

In the CLI

To configure VLAN settings for a wired profile:

(Instant Access Point)(config)# wired-port-profile <name>

(Instant Access Point)(wired ap profile <name>)# switchport-mode {<trunk> | <access>}

(Instant Access Point)(wired ap profile <name>)# allowed-vlan <vlan>

(Instant Access Point)(wired ap profile <name>)# native-vlan {<guest|1…4095>}

(Instant Access Point)(wired ap profile <name>)# end

(Instant Access Point)# commit apply

To configure a new VLAN assignment rule:

(Instant Access Point)(config)# wired-port-profile <name>

(Instant Access Point)(wired ap profile <name>)# set-vlan <attribute>{equals| not-equals| starts-with| ends-with| contains| matches-regular-expression} <operator> <VLAN-ID>| value-of}

(Instant Access Point)(wired ap profile <name>)# end

(Instant Access Point)# commit apply
