I've tried a simple experiment using VLANs with an HP ProCurve 4000M
switch but for some (probably stupid) reason haven't succeeded...
I created two new VLANs named test1 and test2 on the switch with tags
10 and 11, respectively, then put one port into test1, another into
test2, and a third in both. I connected a PC running a recent
-current build to the "common" port and one NetBSD/i386 machine to
each of the others, then attempted to configure the "common" machine
so it could ping each of the others, but no joy. The best I could
get was a successful ping to one but not both.
The central machine has an ex0 NIC. Does it matter whether or not
ex0 has been configured, and is up or not, at the time the pseudo
vlan device is created?
What's the appropriate combination of assigning an IP number(s) and
subnet mask(s) to ex0 and vlan0 -- should both devices be given these
values or just one, and should they be the different?
Should I have created two pseudo vlan devices or just one? At first
I configured the switches "common" port to be tagged (in the switch's
configuration nomenclature) for the VLAN test1 and untagged for
test2. When I didn't succeed I selected "tagged" for both its VLANs
and created another vlan pseudo device, but it didn't help.
