Configures a VLAN to use a specific protocol filter.
|vlan_name||Specifies a VLAN name.|
|vlan_list||Specifies a VLAN list of IDs.|
|protocol_name||Specifies a protocol filter
name. This can be the name of a predefined protocol filter, or one
you define.The following protocol filters are predefined: IP, IPv6,
IPX, NetBIOS, DECNet, IPX_8022, IPX_SNAP, AppleTalk.
Using any indicates that this VLAN should act as the default VLAN for its member ports.
If the keyword any is specified, all packets that cannot be classified into another protocol-based VLAN are assigned to this VLAN as the default for its member ports.
Use the configure protocol command to define your own protocol filter.
These devices do not forward packets with a protocol-based VLAN set to AppleTalk. To ensure that AppleTalk packets are forwarded on the device, create a protocol-based VLAN set to "any" and define other protocol-based VLANs for other traffic, such as IP traffic. The AppleTalk packets pass on the “any” VLAN, and the other protocols pass traffic on their specific protocol-based VLANs.
The following example configures the protocol filter "my_filter" to vlan v1:
configure vlan v1 protocol "my_filter" configure vlan v1 protocol filter "my_filter"
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
The IPv6 parameter was added in ExtremeXOS 11.2.
The filter keyword was added in ExtremeXOS 15.5.
The vlan_list option was added in ExtremeXOS 16.1.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
