This article provides steps on how to configure Cloud Edge Routing mode to create VLAN sub-interfaces.
VLAN segregates devices by adding 802.1Q VLAN tags to all packets sent and received by the devices in the VLAN. VLAN tags are 4-byte frame extensions containing a VLAN identifier as well as other information.
To add VLAN sub-interface:
- On the Cloud Edge Cloud Console, go to Gateways.
- Select a Gateway and go to Network > Interfaces.
- Click the VLAN Add Configuration icon in the Action Column.
- On the Add/Edit VLAN window, provide the VLAN name.
- Specify the VLAN ID that matches the VLAN ID of the packets received by this VLAN sub-interface. Note that VLAN ID cannot be changed on an existing VLAN sub-interface.
- Choose the VLAN sub-interface mode. For WAN1 and LAN1 ports, the VLAN sub-interface can be configured to "DHCP" or "Static" mode. For LAN2, LAN3, and MGMT ports, the VLAN sub-interface is only "Static" mode.
- Configure IPv4 Address and subnet mask. IPv4 address will serve as the default gateway of the workstation on the VLAN.
- Click Save.
- Click Deploy All to send the configuration to the Cloud Edge device.
Once VLAN sub-interfaces are created on Cloud Edge Console for each VLAN, set the default gateway of the machine on each VLAN to the IP assigned on the VLAN sub-interface.
Users that belong to VLAN 100 should be able to reach users on VLAN 200, and vice versa.
