I have 5 VLANs in a switch SF300 configured in Layer3. I Set the switch to general mode so I could connect all the vlans. After 2 weeks that connection has been lost. Now you can only communicate with your respective gateway.

This are the vlans.

  • Thanks por answering, I edit the configuration and routing table. Apr 6 '20 at 0:50
  • On the interfaces where end-devices, e.g. PCs, are attached, there should be one VLAN, and it should not be tagged. You tag VLANs on trunk interfaces because trunk interfaces will have multiple VLANs, and the tags tell them apart. Interfaces to end-devices are access interfaces, and you only have a single, untagged VLAN.

  • Ok, but how can I connect to host with diferent vlan from the same switch. I configure mode general inferface but I don't know if this is correct. Apr 6 '20 at 3:11
  • Did any answer help you? If so, you should accept the answer so that the question doesn't keep popping up forever, looking for an answer. Alternatively, you can post and accept your own answer.

switchport mode general is obsolete - do not use. mode general allows using multiple untagged VLANs but that likely won't work with other ports as expected. It was intended for policy-driven VLANs that should be avoided for security reasons. Without policy, mode general simply doesn't work properly.

Instead, use switchport mode trunk between switches with multiple VLANs, and switchport mode access towards end nodes. With a server connecting multiple VLANs, you can use switchport mode trunk together with a single switchport trunk native VLAN x for the server's main VLAN (so you don't lose connectivity when the server's VLAN config fails or isn't up yet).

  • Thks, I change the configuration and use trunk in port gi4 like this interface gigabitethernet4 switchport trunk allowed vlan add 2-4,6 switchport trunk native vlan 5 then I enter command ping to another gw vlan and doesný work. Apr 6 '20 at 13:11
  • If you can ping the gateway but can't ping anywhere else, routing isn't set up properly. Have you made sure the end nodes have the switch set as (default) gateway?
