I just purchased my first VLAN-capable switch (SLM2008T-NA), and I tried to configure my first vlan on it. However, I am not able to make my trunk port work with ESXi 5.
Here is my current setup:
Port 8 -> Access, PVID 300, Admit Untagged Only ... Port 1 -> Trunk, PVID 300, (I guess it's obviously tagged, since it's a trunk port ?)
Basically, port 8 is my LAN, and port 1 is connected to a vSwitch in ESXi, which is connected to a pfSense appliance.
I am not able to make my trunk port communicate with ESXi, it does not work whether by specifiying VLAN ID 300 in my port group in ESXi, or even by adding a VLAN interface under pfSense (with no VLAN specified in ESXi).
Also, Ingress Filtering is enabled on all ports, I don't know if this option could change something.
I'm a bit confused here, it's the first time I am working with VLANs, am I doing something wrong ?
Also, as a side question, is it a better idea to let ESXi handle VLANs, or adding a VLAN interface in pfSense and let it manage this ?
