Hi All,

I have a problem about connect using Smartport rule a router 2811 ccme to a catalyst 500-24PC. On router run the VoIP system and I have 2 VLAN one default and one Cisco-Voice, but if I configure on one port for 2821 the "router" rule the voice VLAN cannot to be selected. Which is the correct rule to do communicate correctly some IP phone (rule = IP Phone + desktop) and router con CCME?

The port roles are based on the type of devices to be connected to the switch ports.

IP Phone + Desktop: Apply this role to ports that are connected to IP phones.

A desktop device, such as a PC, can be connected to the IP phone. Both the IP phone and connected PC have access to the network and the Internet through the switch port. This role prioritizes voice traffic over data traffic to ensure clear voice reception on the IP phones.
