Re: Link Router and Switch and administrate together with WinBox

Hi again, I just got my new switch and an SFP+ cable :-). So, I linked the router (CRS328-24P-4S+RM) with my new switch (CSS326-24G-2S+RM). They are linked by SFP+1 port and LEDs show a green light -> Seems okay. Now, I am wondering how I can access the web interface of the new switch? What I've don...

Re: Link Router and Switch and administrate together with WinBox

Thanks mkx, does that mean I'd have to assign all VLANs that are used on the switch as "Tagged VLAN" for this port on the router?

Re: Link Router and Switch and administrate together with WinBox

Thanks for your answer.

Today, I'll get the new Mikrotik switch. I have one more question:

What options do I have to linke these two? Only SFP+? Or can I use a LAN port to link these two devices and how do I tell RouterOS to do so?

Hope you understand my question?

Regards,
Flo

Re: Link Router and Switch and administrate together with WinBox

D'oh. This is not very User-/Administrator-friendly.

That means I have to configure all VLANs and so on twice? Do I configure tagged/untagged VLAN settings on the Switch for every single port?

What about DHCP? Only the router will hopefully handle DHCP service.
