About vLan ?

Tue Dec 20, 2016 6:27 pm


i'm new to use vlan, abut working on some case with vlans, the questions:

1- in the vlan dialog box what is this checkbox under the interface named "use service Tag"? and what we use it for?
2- most videos i see they recommend making a Bridge interface then adding at least one port to it the adding the VLAN to it?? why this technique?
for example if there is 2 routers and are connected Router1/interface2 (R1/2) to Router2/interface1 (R2/1) then just add the VLAN100 and VLAN200 to R1/2 and the same to R2/1 then connect them, if it is not working then why??
3- how to build a VLAN trunk?

please guide to some resources. all available are not english

add your vlan's to an interface and define trunk that interface in switch config.
'VLAN ID' is important, you must define a vlan id in switch with same name in mikrotik.
then define dhcp over that VLAN.
