CSS106 (RB260) VLANs between multiples swicthes and Hybrid port

Mon Jun 03, 2019 10:18 pm

Hi,

I thought I have everything figured out.. But again I am buffled :)
So I have multiple switches linked together.
- port 1 : Uplink to GW (All Tagged)
- Port 2 : All Tagged VLANs to hAPAC2
- Port 3: Hybrid Port - Untagged VLAN and Multiple Tagged Ones
- Port 4: Hybrid Port - Untagged VLAN and Multiple Tagged Ones
- Port 5: Uplink to another RB260 (trunk port)


If going from RouterOS world:
- Add If missing - Tagged Port
- Always Strip - Untaged Port

Now I have read this:
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/SwOS/SWO ... woSwitches

And Switch1 - Port 5 (Uplink to another switch..) is puzzling to me.
1.On VLAN Tab:
VLAN Mode : Enabled
Egress: Leave as is

2. On VLANs Tab:
Port 5 has all VLANs set to Not a Member?!

Why?
Should it be set: Add If Missing or Leave as is?!
I would set it exactly the same as port 1 which goes to RouterOS.

And another question - Hybrid port in my case..
Is it set correctly for port 3 and 4 in above scenario:
1.On VLAN Tab:
VLAN Mode : Strict
Default Vlan ID: 50
Force VLAN ID: unchecked
Egress: Always Strip - Is it correct or should it be leave as is? If So Why?

2. On VLANs Tab:
VLAN ID POR3
50 Always Strip
100 Add If Missing
101 Add If Missing

Is this correct or should I set it to Leave as is? And Again Why?
Wiki is just to unclear..

@Mikrotik: Please could you make a updated Wiki With different port options for CSS106 (RB260) just like the examples in this Wiki Page
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:S ... s_Ports.29

The above example is excelent for learning.. it shows all port types and simple step by step how to achieve it!

@Mikrotik: Or better yet why dont you use as almost all other vendors: Untagged and Tagged Checkboxes and or Access, Hybrid and Trunk ports... I know wishful thinking

Thanks for your answers..

Re: CSS106 (RB260) VLANs between multiples swicthes and Hybrid port  [SOLVED]

Hi all,

support got back to me! And kudos to mr. Edwards for writing the updated easy to understand Wiki for SwOS!
https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/SwOS/CSS106-VLAN-Example

Please disregard wiki link in previous post because it is outdated! Always use the one provided above this line!

For Hybrid port you specify untagged port with Default VLAN ID on VLAN tab and on VLANs tab you "leave it as is".
Mr. Edwards also said it should work if you set it as Always strip but is essentialy unnecessery because you set the untagged traffic with Defaul VLAN ID.

Again Thanks for clarification and Wiki Update.
I am sure it will help a lot of us!

I just wish that Mikrotik would standardize the interface between the different switches. I have one RB260, one CSS106, one CRS326 (running SwitchOS), and two CSS326s and it's annoying that the UI is so different between them.
RB750Gr3, RB750r2, CRS326-24G-2S (in SwitchOS), CSS326-24G-2S, CSS106-5G-1S, RB260GS
Not sure if I beat them in submission, or they beat me into submission

I have to wonder how it is that the Switch can use ALWAYS STRIP for an untagged vlan on a particular port (first example on provided link), and when in hybrid mode instead of ALWAYS STRIP, it says to use LEAVE AS IS (second example) ???? This does not seem to be a consistent approach!
I'd rather manage rats than software. Follow my advice at your own risk! (Sob & mkx forced me to write that!)
