Trunk cannot pass untagged traffic

Trunk cannot pass untagged traffic

I have created a trunk port with the following VLANs 1, 110, 120, 130

It appears as though I HAVE to have an untagged VLAN set on the port also so I left it as 1

 

If I connect my laptop to a VLAN 1 access port I simply cannot talk to the other end of the trunk, but if I sent the untagged port on the trunk to 130 instead then I can.  I am now assuming I won't be able to talk over the trunk with VLAN 130.

 

Am I just being stupid but this doesn't seem like how this should work?  I cannot remove the untagged field to blank so I am stuck with it.

 

Help!

This was discussed some years ago here. Access Mode and Trunk Mode were added for those who were more familiar with Cisco and wished to configure it that way. General alone does need a lot more configuration effort.

Have set the PVID for the VLAN you intend to run untagged on the trunk? The PVID does define the VLAN you want untagged frames assigned to.

Re: Trunk cannot pass untagged traffic

I switched the type from Trunk to General and everything worked as I intended, strangely enough that was the only change I had to make so there must be some extra rules around the use of Trunk as opposed to General that I don't understand.
