I built a pfsense box a while back and am finally getting around to setting up VLANs. I followed this guy’s guide which basically sets up a series of VLANs to segregate network traffic as most people do. This is all set up and appears to be working correctly. Now I need to configure the pfsense box’s primary LAN interface as a trunk to a switch so I can do VLAN tagging on specific switch ports or WiFi networks on UniFi APs.
I have a HP V1810-48G and am trying to figure out how to configure a Trunk interface such that I can connect my UniFi AP and other boxes to specific VLANs.
I have tried various configurations and can’t seem to get this to work on this switch. Am I wasting my time with this switch or am I doing something wrong.
I have tried configuring a Trunk interface on port 1 on this switch, and connecting the LAN interface on the pfsense box to it, but it doesn’t work. I have also tried setting VLAN 1 (untagged), and all other VLANs as tagged on that port 1 interface and it connects, but I can’t seem to get a tagged interface to get an ip address on the connected host. I’m not sure what I’m missing…
Any help would be much appreciated!
