Hi,
Is it possible to create a mac based vlan just with an USG40?

I want to create MAC based VLAN in the Network to separate different users. For Example VLAN10 MAC based for UserGroup1, VLAN20 MAC based for UserGroup2 and VLAN100 not MAC based for every other user.
If a device connects to the network with a configured MAC in VLAN10 it should gets a IP in this range. If a MAC address is c onfigured in VLAN20 it should get an IP from this range too. If the MAC is not configured in any VLAN it should get a IP of VLAN100.
VLAN10 and VLAN20 could also be static non DHCP.

If this is possible, how can i configure it?

    You need a VLAN switch with the USG40

    When you set a VLAN on the USG40 it will be tagged I get your idea but USG40 currently does not do this plus it be untagged to every VLAN/LAN and is not secure

    Thanks Peter.

    Do you know if it is possible with a GS2200?

    Current platforms for our firewalls such as uOS, ZLD, and USG don't support MAC-based VLAN.
    You can achieve this scenario by GS2200. MAC-based VLAN is a basic feature for our switches.

    Hi James

    Do you have an manual or a config example for an Mac-based VLAN on GS2200?

    Hi James
    Thanks for the Manuall, but i can't find "MAC Based VLAN" like it is described in it, see printscreens of my two Switches.

    You can do VLAN without MAC Based VLAN.

    Setup a VLAN on USG40 connect a device to the switch you wish to go to that VLAN with PVID and untag on the given port then tag out the port to USG40

    Hi Peter
    But in this case it is still port based, every device which is connected to that switch is in the same VLAN?

    The use case of my question is that i want to seperate the devices(Parents, kids, technical, IoT, guests,…). But every mobile device(Mobilephones,Notebook) can connect on different Port in the house and there are also a few WIFI routers where they can connect.
    Therefore i thought i could do this with a MAC based VLAN, but might a VLAN is not a proper solution of this use case?
