Re: difference between native vlan in ISL & dot1q

Unlike an ISL trunk, on a 802.1q trunk, one VLAN is NOT tagged. This VLAN, named the native VLAN, must be configured the same on each side of the trunk. This way, we can deduce to which VLAN a frame belongs when we

receive a frame with no tag. You can find more info on this at
