Powerbox Pro as PoE VLAN Trunk Switch

Hello, I have a powerbox pro that needs to run as a L2 poe switch with every port acting as a trunk port for a handful of vlans. I do not need any ports untagged and every port can be the same. I can achieve this by adding the same vlan interfaces to all ports, and bridging but I know this is the wr...

One /25 public subnet for 100 vlans without 1:1 nat?

Hello, Can one subnet provide addressing for many vlans without 1:1 natting? I want one vlan per customer's CPE router, but instead of each vlan having its own /30, just one /25 is used across all vlans. The reason I want to do it this way is to avoid the use of PPPoE but still keep customer's traff...
