Re: Catalyst 4500 VLAN config

Hello Sham,

the Vlan(s) used for VOIP phones need to be carried over the inter-switch link.

if it is only one you could think of an access link.

Otherwise a L2 trunk is needed.

In that case I would suggest to specify the allowed vlans

int gx/y


switchport enc dot1q

switchport mode trunk

switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,145

example the list is made of vlans separated by ',' without spaces in the middle. Ranges are allowed using the '-' sign

You need to define the vlans on linksys if it is configurable.

If it is a plug and play device you probably should configure the link as an access link in vlan 145

Hope to help
