Can someone explain to me what 'vlan dot1q tag native' does? and what the native vlan is and how it relates to trunking? i ran into a problem earlier today and was able to fix it by using that command.... not sure if that is the right way or what i really did, looking for some explanations. thank you, greatly appreciated
well, by default the native vlan on a trunk default (vlan 1) is not tagged with a dot1q tag. That command tells the switch to tag the native vlan on whatever trunk port it is configured.. so all vlans will carry a dot1q tag. dont know that situation but you might have had a native vlan mismatch on the trunk and tagging it resolved it on one of the sides, but i doubt that was the correct solution.
