Adding VLANs to an EdgeSwitch-XP

Back to Top

GUI: Access the ES-XP Web UI.

1. Navigate to the VLANs tab.

2. Add the necessary VLANs by clicking on the Add button.

In this example, we are adding the following VLANs:

  • 10 Data
  • 20 Guest
NOTE: By default, all switch-ports are defined as trunk ports.

3. If VLANs need to be untagged on certain ports, uncheck the trunk checkbox first.

4. Untag the necessary VLANs on the relevant switch-ports.

In this example, we are untagging VLAN10 on port 4 and VLAN20 on port 5:

  • Uncheck the trunk checkbox on port 4 and 5.
  • Under port 4 and port 5, change the default VLAN1 from Untagged (U) to Excluded (E).
  • Under port 4, change VLAN10 from Excluded (E) to Untagged (U).
  • Under port 5, change VLAN20 from Excluded (E) to Untagged (U).

5. Apply the changes. 

6.  Change the management VLAN to another VLAN ID.

7. Apply the changes by clicking on the Save Changes button.
