Trunk between RGS200 and XGS2220

Hello,

I have a super basic problem.
I need to communicate several VLANS between a XGS2220 and a RGS200.
For my tests, I reduced the configuration to a minimum: 1 untagged VLAN and 1 tagged VLAN (ID 10). The ports are configured to tag VLAN 10.
An IP interface is configured for VLAN 10 on the RGS200 and on the XGS2220.
Pings don't pass.

I added an RGS200 which communicates with the first RGS200, everything is ok. The trunk is ok and the pings go through correctly. So I'm focusing on a problem with the XGS2220.

Is there a subtlety to configuring this type of links in the XGS2220?

Regards.

    Hi @GoatLy ,

    Could you share with us the configuration files for both switches? This will enable us to review your setup more thoroughly. A diagrammatic topology would be appreciated if possible.

    Additionally, I'd like to inform you that we replicated simply by using the RGS200-12HP and XGS2220-30 models. We achieved successful ping responses for both the LAN 1 and VLAN 10 IP addresses from the RGS200-12HP when connecting directly port 1 of XGS2220-30 to port 3 of the RGS200-12HP.

    RGS200-12:

    XGS2220-30:

    Hi @GoatLy ,

    The "Fixed" is to add this port to this VLAN group.
    The "Normal" is to allow this port can dynamically join this VLAN group by GVRP.
    And the GVRP (GARP VLAN Registration Protocol) is a registration protocol that defines a way for switches to register necessary VLAN members on ports across the network.

    Hello Judy,

    thanks, your answer is perfect and the problem is solved.

    On the XGS2220, the VLAN was declared in "normal" instead of "fixed".

    Last question : what is the difference between this two values ?
