Native VLan

Why We need Native Vlan ?

Rupesh

On an 802.1q trunk link all vlans are tagged with a vlan ID except for the native vlan which is sent without a vlan ID.

The reason for the native vlan is to provide backwards compatability with older switches that do not understand 802.1q.

Re: Native VLan

Hi Rupesh is correct,

Just an addition,

for some reason

If you want, you could make any vlan as native VLAN by issuing eg. native vlan 5

Thanks
