Not sure if these forums are meant for noobie questions but i'm new to the cisco / networking side of things. Read a fair few discussions on trunk ports etc and what they are and how they work. and I understand they should be used when communicating traffic that is on more than one vlan across one port.
I had an issue by which one of our ports on a cisco switch was not working correctly. the port itself connected to a POE phone and then that phone connects to the desktop to give it , its network connection.
The port it was on was configured as below
switchport access vlan 149
switchport voice vlan 200
this isn't the exact port I've just copied it onto a dummy switch on packet tracer, so I initially thought that the issue would be it had not been set to switchport mode trunk as it was sending both data for vlan 149 and voice vlan 200, but this was no the case. my colleague who set the port up new this would work but didn't really know why.
Why is it that this port can send multiple vlan data without being configured as trunk port? does this not count if the data is set to a voice vlan and a normal data vlan?
(The issue was to do with vlan 149's config in the end) It just confused me that's all!
Also, just so I understand this all correctly. if say you had a switch, and
ports 1-3 were on vlan 10, and set to switch port mode access
port 4-7 were on vlan 20, and set to switchport mode trunk
would ports 4-7 receive all the broadcasts sent from ports 1-3 even though they are on different vlan simply because Trunk is specified as the mode? (I think I would, would just like it confirmed!)
Yes, I believe it depends on the model of the switch but most newer POE switches support it. I don't have a list of the switches that do support it and the once don't. I think you just have to try it and see if you can enable it.
