Re: Help with VLANs Port 26 would be set to tagged, all others untagged.
Ports 1- 4 would have PVID set to 1
Port 24 would have PVID set to 2.
Port 26 is set to "tagged". That passes the VLAN info to the pfsense box.
The PVID adds a tag to the incoming ports so it gets put in the proper VLAN.
Data coming in ports 1-4 have PVID of 1 added to the packet. If they go out again though 1-4, the tag is removed (ports are set as untagged.) If they go out port 26, this tag is left on so the pfsense box can decode it.
Similar for port 24.
The pfsense box would be sending tagged packets. Port 26 would see that and put the packets in the appropriate VLAN.
What is not clear is incoming packets. Your switch seems to have just "tagged" or "untagged" for each ports. Other switches have this separate as options in a list:
1. accept tagged packets only
2. accept untagged packets only
3. accept both
1 send tagged
2. send untagged
I have a pfsense box using an Alix board. It only has 1 ethernet port so I use VLANs the same as you are (except I have about a dozen ports in each VLAN.)
