I was looking at this document about PIX and 802.1q VLAN trunking:
In this example there is a server in VLAN1. The physical interface of the pix is put in VLAN2 and a virtual interface is created for VLAN3. How would the server in VLAN1 get to the devices in the other VLANs in this case? Am I missing something?
I think I understand your confusion. It looks to me like there is an error in Figure 2-9. The hosts above the distribution layer switch should be in VLAN 2 and VLAN 3 rather than VLAN 1 and VLAN 2. As you know, the default VLAN on any Cisco switch is VLAN 1 and we suggest that you not use this VLAN for anything in a production network. If you change the hosts in the figure to VLAN 2 and VLAN 3, does this example make more sense? In other words, look at the info and think about it as two seperate interfaces. Let me know if this is still not clear.
PS - I will open a bug to fix this example.
