Physically joining a VLAN.

See Attached Diagram

VLAN 1 Utagged on both Switches, GVRP Disabled.
VLAN 2 Utagged on both Switches, GVRP Disabled.

Is is possible to set up this configuration to allow the VLAN's to communicate with each other accross the patches. I do not want to use Tagged VLANS (Trunks) as VLAN2 is a control system network and the engineers have requested a seperate physical link between the switches. I know this is not the correct setup I just want to know it is possible.

Re: Physically joining a VLAN.

Hi

This is a normal Layer2 Vlan setup, and yes its possible, since what you want is hosts on Vlan1 on both switches only to communicate, and same for Vlan2 hosts on other switch.
Just keep these patches untagged to each one's Vlan, and they will communicate.

Good Luck !!!

In this setup hosts in VLAN1 will not comunicate with hosts in VLAN2. If you want communication between these hosts you will need a router.
