How-to Discussions / Re: VLAN DHCP In OPNSense?
« Last post by Ruok2bu on May 08, 2021, 01:34:13 AM »
My switch is an all or nothing kind of thing. If i enable VLAN support, all ports have it enabled, i cant leave one port un-enabled.

Is your computer that you are logging into OPNsense on the same default LAN network? By default OPNsense runs on 192.168.1.1. When working with VLANs, the default untagged VLAN ID is usually 1. So that means all ports on your switch that do not have any VLANs set will be on that default untagged VLAN 1. Make sure the computer you are connecting to OPNsense is on an untagged port.

Also, you will need to sure that the port on the switch that the OPNsense box is connected to is set up to allow all VLAN tags to pass through. Different network device manufacturers use different terms. Some call it trunk ports. The port the router is plugged into needs to be configured to allow all VLAN and untagged traffic if you are using the default VLAN 1 as the management VLAN. I think it's easiest to use the default VLAN.

I know some people prefer to change the management network to a different VLAN since it's easy to make the mistake of plugging a device on an untagged port and have access to the network management network. If you set all of your other ports to be in different VLANs (or may another default unused VLAN ID), then you would not have to worry about that issue as much.

So im having a problem, i followed all your guides, got VLAN's set up, enabled the DNS and DHCP rules for them (at the very least my management computer), got a smart VLAN switch. But everytime i enable VLAN on the switch (and set it to use the same VLAN IDs as i have configured on site), i lock myself out of OpenSense.

Any idea how to get around this?

Yes, that should be adequate to give you basic VLAN support. Unmanaged switches will often pass along VLAN tags, but you can't configure any of the ports to participate in VLANs, which is why you need a smart/managed switch. Once you have the switch, you will set up the same VLAN IDs on both the switch and OPNsense (or whatever router software you are using).

Aha! That was the problem. My switches are dumb and unmanaged.
I'm going to get one 8 port VLAN aware switch instead.

I was looking at https://www.amazon.ca/TP-Link-Ethernet-Unmanaged-Replacement-TL-SG108E/dp/B00K4DS5KU  Is that one good enough or do you recommend something else? Ideally i dont want to spend over $100 on the switch.

P.S. It will be used at home where i need to isolate 5 networks.

P.P.S. I was using Sonicwall SOHO for the last 15 years but got tired of having to pay yearly for access to updated firmware.
