This article describes how to create VLANs using Datto Switches.
- Datto Switches
A Virtual LAN (VLAN) is a Layer 2 configuration that groups together devices to behave as if they were on the same wire. Traffic is tagged with an ID, and subsequent ports on other Datto Switches will only process traffic with that ID.
1. In the Navigation menu, click Switches, then select Port Settings from the expanded options.
2. Select your desired ports, then click Configure.
3. Click the VLANs drop-down menu to reveal configuration settings.
4. Click Save Switch Settings to save all modified settings.
The following settings for VLANs are available:
- PVID: This setting lets you input a VLAN ID that will tag incoming packets.
- Untagged VLAN: This setting lets you input a VLAN ID that is stripped from outgoing packets if incoming packets have the same ID.
- Tagged VLANs: This setting lets you input a VLAN ID. If an incoming packet matches this ID, the switch will forward this packet to the specified VLAN.
- Enable Voice VLAN: This setting enables the Voice VLAN feature for this port. Read the Voice VLAN article for more information.
