Configuring VLANs / 802.1Q
The 802.1Q standard defines a system of VLAN tagging for Ethernet frames and the accompanying procedures that are used by bridges and switches when handling these frames.
The ALOHA load balancer supports VLAN tagging and can be integrated in such environment.
VLANs follow the rules below:
A physical interface can have its own IP configuration and a VLAN interface
The VLAN must be tagged on the switch
A VLAN interface can be created on top of a bond interface
Create a VLAN interface
To create a vlan interface, you have to create a new service network:
Browse the ALOHA WUI.
Open the Services tab.
Click Setup on the Network line.
Add a directive to create a new VLAN interface
service network eth<id>.<vlanid>
Create vlan 100 on eth0
service network eth0.100 ip address 192.168.100.11/24
Create vlan 200 on bond1
service network bond1.200 ip address 192.168.200.11/24
Apply the configuration:
If you just created the VLAN interface, click Restart on the network line.
If you just updated an existing VLAN interface, click Reload .
Configure a VLAN interface
You configure a VLAN interface in the same way as the physical interface.
All the documentation available in the IP configuration and VRRP pages also applies to VLAN interface.
