I have an interesting issue. I have to use a switch to dynamically connect and disconnect multiple devices together in a point to point configuration, without changing anything on the end user side.
For example I would first like computer A and B to be point to point, then after some time I would like A and C to be point to point. ETC. I am not worried about the changing I have automation scripts that can handle it. The problem is the computers are running their own randomized vlans, and I do not want to know or care what vlan they are on, as it is a range. I am using an fs S3900-48T4S.
This switch has many features and one is QinQ which I thought would be perfect so I set the configuration like this:
interface ethernet 1/8 switchport mode access switchport access vlan 2 switchport dot1q-tunnel mode access
Then the same thing on side b
interface ethernet 1/9 switchport mode access switchport access vlan 2 switchport dot1q-tunnel mode access
this kinda works but it causes toggling in the connection. One minute it will be connected the next not connected.
Is there another way to do this, or am I missing a setting.
