Hi everybody,


I have a question.


Can be set to WAN 1 port two VLAN ID ?

My network provider will give me a trunk port (from the router) on which there are two VLANs. 1. Internet 2. VVN (IP voice)

Is it possible to receive via 1 WAN port?


Meraki MX84 he has two WAN port, but WAN 2 I want to use for internet backup.


the PBX (phone switchboard) has only one Ethernet input.

I need to add VVN to the network on a separate vlan.

Thank you very much for any advice.

I am not aware that this would be possible. You could split the services with a VLAN-aware-switch on the outside of the MX.

Yes, you're right.

don't you know how to receive internet and VVN to the network via mx?

As we only have one possible tag on the WAN-port, I don't see other ways than using the external switch or let the provider deliver the services with two physical interfaces.

Head in the Cloud

MX doesn't allow for multiple VIPs/Virtual interfaces on the WAN ports. The only way this would be possible would be to install a layer 2 switch in between your ISP CPE and MX. Trunk from the switch to the ISP CPE and then two access ports on each VLAN from your layer 2 switch to both of your MX WAN interfaces.
