Protocol-based VLAN Configuration on FS S3900 Series Switches

Posted on By FS.COM

There are usually multiple services such as IPTV, VoIP, and Internet access using different protocols in the LAN network. To facilitate network management, services using the same protocol are classified into the same VLAN for management. Thus there will be multiple protocol-based VLANs in one network. Processing data frames based on protocols such as IP, IPX, AT, etc, protocol-based VLAN is a VLAN that can only be configured in the hybrid interface to define filtering criteria for untagged packets. This article will focus on the protocol-based VLAN configuration on FS S3900 series switches which are designed for the campus network, SMB, and home network.

Protocol-based VLAN Application on FS S3900 Series Switches

The following figure shows a typical protocol-based VLAN networking application of the S3900-24T4S managed switch. In the network, Internet services are provided through IPv4 and IPv6 protocols respectively. By configuring protocol-based VLANs on FS S3900-24T4S switches, the Internet services are divided into two different VLANs——VLAN 10 and VLAN 20. In VLAN 10, end-users communicate with the Internet server through the IPv4 protocol, while in VLAN 20, users use IPv6 to communicate.

Notes:


  • When receiving an untagged frame from a port, the switch will identify the protocol profile of the frame and then determine the VLAN that the frame belongs to.

  • If protocol-based VLANs are configured on the interface and the protocol profile of the frame matches a protocol-based VLAN, the switch adds the VLAN tag to the frame.

  • If protocol-based VLANs are configured on the interface and the protocol profile of the frame matches no protocol-based VLAN, the switch adds the PVID(Port VLAN ID) of the interface to the frame.

Protocol-based VLAN Configuration Roadmap of S3900 Series Switches

The protocol-based VLAN configuration of the S3900 series switches can be realized via the CLI interface. And the configuration process is suitable for all modes of S3900 series switches. Here take S3900-24T4S as an example.


  • Configure the IP address for the PCs.

  • Create the VLANs associated with each network layer protocol on the switches.

  • Configure the port type of the switch and allow the corresponding protocol VLAN to get through.

  • Verify your configuration.

S3900 Series Switches Protocol-based VLAN Configuration Via CLI

1. Configure the IPv4 address for the PC1 and PC3; configure the IPv6 address for the PC2 and PC4.

IP: 192.168.10.2
IP:192.168.10.3
IP: 2001::1:2
IP: 2001::1:3

2. Create VLAN 10 and VLAN 20 on the S3900-24T4S switch.

S3900-24T4S(config)#vlan database
S3900-24T4S(config-vlan)#vlan 10
S3900-24T4S(config-vlan)#vlan 20
S3900-24T4S(config-vlan)#exit

3. Configure the network protocol to associate with the corresponding VLAN.

S3900-24T4S(config)#protocol-vlan protocol-group 1 add frame-type ethernet protocol-type ip
S3900-24T4S(config)#protocol-vlan protocol-group 2 add frame-type ethernet protocol-type ipv6
S3900-24T4S(config)#protocol-vlan protocol-group 3 add frame-type ethernet protocol-type arp
S3900-24T4S(config)#interface ethernet 1/2
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#protocol-vlan protocol-group 1 vlan 10
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#protocol-vlan protocol-group 3 vlan 10
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#exit
S3900-24T4S(config)#interface ethernet 1/3
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#protocol-vlan protocol-group 2 vlan 20
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#exit
S3900-24T4S(config)#interface ethernet 1/4
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#protocol-vlan protocol-group 1 vlan 10
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#exit
S3900-24T4S(config)#interface ethernet 1/5
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#protocol-vlan protocol-group 2 vlan 20
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#exit

4. Configure the eth1/2-5 port of S3900-24T4S switch as the hybrid interface and remove the corresponding VLAN tags.

S3900-24T4S(config)#int ethernet 1/2
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#switchport mode hybrid
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#switchport hybrid allowed vlan add 10 untagged
S3900-24T4S(config)#int ethernet 1/3
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#switchport mode hybrid
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#switchport hybrid allowed vlan add 20 untagged
S3900-24T4S(config)#int ethernet 1/4
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#switchport mode hybrid
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#switchport hybrid allowed vlan add 10 untagged
S3900-24T4S(config)#int ethernet 1/5
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#switchport mode hybrid
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#switchport hybrid allowed vlan add 20 untagged

5. Configure the eth1/1 port of S3900-24T4S switch as the trunk interface and allow all VLANs to get through.

S3900-24T4S(config)#int ethernet 1/1
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
S3900-24T4S(config-if)#switchport trunk allowed vlan all

6. Create VLAN 10 and VLAN 20 on the S5800-8TF12S switch; configure the eth1/1 port as the trunk interface and allow all VLANs to get through.

S5800-8TF12S(config)#vlan database
S5800-8TF12S(config-vlan)#vlan 10
S5800-8TF12S(config-vlan)#vlan 20
S5800-8TF12S(config-vlan)#exit
S5800-8TF12S(config)#int ethernet 1/1
S5800-8TF12S(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
S5800-8TF12S(config-if)#switchport trunk allowed vlan all

7. Configure the eth2/3 port of the S5800-8TF12S switch as the trunk port and allow the corresponding VLANs to get through.

S5800-8TF12S(config)#int ethernet 1/2
S5800-8TF12S(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
S5800-8TF12S(config-if)#switchport trunk allowed vlan add 10
S5800-8TF12S(config)#int ethernet 1/3
S5800-8TF12S(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
S5800-8TF12S(config-if)#switchport trunk allowed vlan add 20

8. Verify your configuration.
