A VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) allows a physical network to be partitioned into multiple logical networks. Stations on a logical network belong to one or more groups. With VLAN, a station cannot directly talk to or hear from stations that are not in the same group(s) unless such traffic first goes through a router.
Ethernet VLAN Setup
To configure VLANs on the Ethernet ports built-in to the line card please access the management cards web configuration screen to setup the respective line card. Do the following from the configuration menu:
- Click on the VLAN menu option on the left.
- Select the VLAN sub category option.
- Enable the entry; provide a name and VLAN ID. Select which Ethernet ports will be part of the VLAN (FIXED) and whether traffic should be tagged. Click Apply to create the VLAN entry.
xDSL Port VLAN Setup
VLAN's for ADSL configuration are based on the VC port setup (VPI/VCI). To configure multiple VPI/VCI settings per xDSL port and specify a VLAN ID please click the Port menu on the left.
From here click the PVC sub category.
Now select the slot number of the line card you wish to configure on the DSLAM. Once the slot is selected, choose the port number you wish to configure and Load the ports configuration.
Set the VPI/VCI configuration and the PVID (port VLAN ID) that will be assigned to modems configured to connect to that VPI/VCI setup. Click Apply to add the new configuration on the port.
If multiple ports will be configured on the device with this same configuration, select the profile and press the Copy button to copy the port settings.
A pop-up window will open (please make sure the browser allows the pop-up to open), select the line card you wish to configure and the ports you want to paste the settings to. Click the Apply button to save the changes.
When all necessary changes have been made, please click on the Config Save menu on the left to save the configuration settings to memory. If the configuration is not saved to memory all setting will revert back to the last save if/when the DSLAM is rebooted.
