You should configure Port Isolation on your switch within a VLAN environment when you want to prevent direct communication between computers within the same VLAN.

This is particularly useful in scenarios where computers are intended to communicate only with servers or the internet, not interact with each other, such as in shared office spaces or public networks.

Port Isolation ensures that all inter-device traffic is routed through the uplink port, thus enhancing the overall security and performance of the network.
