Switch port interface

Is it possbile to configure one of the ethernet interface ports on a PA 3020 as a switch port?

Re: Switch port interface

Configuring interfaces as mode "Layer2/L2", should make them behave as layer2 switch interfaces.

so its as easy as going to the network tab\interfaces selecting ethernet1/1 and changing the interface type to layer2 and clicking okay

Yes you are correct. Also you can tag that interface too.

The following doc explains how PA can be used in different Layer 2 scenarios

Hope this helps you with the configuration,

Thanks

Re: Switch port interface

So what about trying to configure the PA to match up with ports on the ASA 5505 as shown here

interface Ethernet0/2

switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,999

switchport trunk native vlan 1

switchport mode trunk

!


interface Ethernet0/3

switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,999

switchport trunk native vlan 1

switchport mode trunk
