Network > VLANs
The firewall supports VLANs that conform to the IEEE 802.1Q standard. Each Layer 2 interface defined on the firewall can be associated with a VLAN. The same VLAN can be assigned to multiple Layer 2 interfaces but each interface can belong to only one VLAN.
Enter a VLAN name (up to 31 characters). This name appears in the list of VLANs when configuring interfaces. The name is case-sensitive and must be unique. Use only letters, numbers, spaces, hyphens, and underscores.
Select a Network > Interfaces > VLAN to allow traffic to be routed outside the VLAN.
Specify firewall interfaces for the VLAN.
Static MAC Configuration
Specify the interface through which a MAC address is reachable. This will override any learned interface-to-MAC mappings.
