VLAN Table

In the VLAN Table field, add a table row for every VLAN to be defined. 

Physical Device – Select the physical LAN device to be divided into VLANs, such as eth0 (corresponding to EtherPort object with instance 0). In Linux, the original network interface will be renamed (e.g., eth0 will be renamed to eth0_base) unless the VLAN_ID is 0.

If the interface is renamed to "eth?_base", the IP address settings configured in ACE for that physical device are not used. However, the instance of the physical port still must be defined in order to give Linux a network interface that can be divided into VLANs. 

New Device Name – Select the Virtual LAN device to associate with the Physical Device selected (above). The IP settings for this VLAN device will be taken from the EtherPort object with the corresponding instance number. 

VLAN ID – Enter the numeric VLAN ID to use fofor 802.1Q tagging (1 to 4094). Use 0 to keep the original interface with untagged packets (i.e. don't rename to eth?_base). It is recommended to avoid VLAN 1.


PPP Port

The PPP port configuration defines the physical PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) connections. PPP is a serial IP connection that is used for some dial-out or dial-in applications. (For an Elecsys E-Modem, use the Cell Modem object instead of this generic PPP object.)
