Task 1.4 - Dot1q

When configuring the trunk using 'encapsulation dot1q', is it always a mandatory to configure 'vlan dot1q tag native' under the global configurations? to make vlan1 become untag over the trunk?

Comments

  • The "vlan dot1q tag native" command merely tells the switch to tag the native vlan on dot1q trunks. By default, it is disabled and the traffic is sent untagged on the native vlan. You don't have to configure this command unless you want the native vlan being tagged.

    hey nitrodrops,

    task 1.3 states that all traffic should be send with a tag, so the native vlan should be tagged to.
