vlan tagging

Unanswered Question
Feb 17th, 2008

Hi all, can anyone tell me, if I have a standalone switch and I have vlan 10 set up on it, when one pc talks to another in the same vlan on the switch, is any tagging done here at all ? or would the tagging be done only over uplink ports ?

I have this problem too.

Nope it will not be tagged in this case

As soon as the switch receives the frame, it will look at its mac-address table and send the frame out the correct egress port

Remember, the VLAN ID or Tag field exists only in a trunk Frame (either dot1q or ISL)
