3560 private vlan: can one physical port be member of multiple communities

Unanswered Question

with private vlan is it possible to have one physical port be a member of multiple communities? here is and example:

vlan 100

private-vlan primary

private-vlan association 120,130


vlan 120

private-vlan community


vlan 130

private-vlan community


how do i get fa 0/1 to be member of both 120 and 130 vlans? i would like this to happen:

As an isolated VLAN-Carries traffic from isolated ports to a promiscuous port. As a community VLAN-Carries traffic between community ports and to promiscuous ports. You can configure multiple community VLANs in a PVLAN. Community VLANs-Ports within a community VLAN can communicate with each other but cannot communicate with ports in other communities at the Layer 2 level. I think you can't configure multiple communities on single VLAN.

It's impossible. You can associate one port per a community.
