Two (2) types of VLANs can be created

  • Port-base VLANs
  • Protocol-base VLANs


Port bases VLANs or sometimes called Layer-1 VLAN because it is assigned to the physical port

vlan create <VLAN# 1-4094> [name <acsii-word>] type <VLAN-Type> [<Spanning Tree# 1-8>]}

Configuration changes are made from the configuration prompt.
