MS120 Uplink vlan no connection

Hi!

 

I have a pfsense router with a vlan configured on port 3. My MS120 switch is directly connected to this port.

 

My pfsense vlan settings are:

Interface 3 (Port 3):

Status: Enabled

No IP assigned

 

VLAN 1 (native on interface 3):

Status: Enabled

IP: 10.20.2.1/24

 

 

Via the local access page I configured the switch to match the pfsense settings:

IP: 10.20.2.4

VLAN: 1

Mask: 255.255.255.0

Gateway: 10.20.2.1

DNS: 8.8.8.8

 

Unfortunately, the light on the switch remains orange and my pfsense router does not see it. When I connect the cable coming from the router to my Mac and create a new virtual vlan interface with tag 1 and the same ip/mask/gateway/dns as the switch, it connects just fine.

 

Not sure why it's not working on the switch as my pfsense vlans seem to be configured properly.

 

Any ideas?

Kind of a big deal

How is the port on that switch configured? Try removing the VLAN on the switch port configuration. Just delete 1 and hit save. Report back your results.

The uplink port on the switch is set to trunk (native vlan 1, allowed vlans: all). I can't seem to remove the vlan from the uplink configuration (invalid vlan specified).

Kind of a big deal

For the sake of trial and error, what if you change the port from trunk to access?

If you have to create a VLAN interface on your MAC with a tag of 1 - and it works - then it suggests that your Mac is tagging those packets.  The pfSense box is configured to have VLAN1 as being native - so that should not be working.

 

With a native vlan of 1 on the pfSense box, you should be able to just plug your Mac in just access it, without creating any VLAN interface.  I would get pfSense to the point where you can just plug in the mac (without a VLAN configuration) and get it working.  Once that works, the MS will alsmost certainly work.
