Hello i have a configured a trunk port between a Cisco and a DELL powerconnect however i cannot pass traffic
the Blue is CISCO
the Orange is DELL
What did i misconfigure? Native VLAN is 20 for DATA
Since the Cisco is in trunk mode it should be sending tagged packets, but the powerconnect is sending back untagged traffic and it doesn’t know what to do with them. Try setting the power connect to send VLAN 20 as tagged.
still not passing traffic.
if i put both sides into switchport access vlan 20 i can pass the vlan 20 traffic.
its just in trunk and general mode i cannot pass anything .
DELLconsole#show running-config interface ethernet 2/g17
switchport mode general
switchport general pvid 20
switchport general allowed vlan add 7,10,20 tagged
switchport general allowed vlan remove 1
Current configuration : 154 bytes
switchport trunk native vlan 20
switchport trunk allowed vlan 7,10
switchport mode trunk
What happens if you make both sides trunk ports?
Trunk ports don’t have a native VLAN. Why do you need an untagged VLAN between the switches?
Ok, everything else looks fine from the current configuration so it should work. Is the firmware up to date?
Not that far out of date, but here is the latest. https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/drivers/driversdetails?driverid=xtj1x&oscode=naa&productc...
