    Questions that needed some clarification

    Vijay Swaminathan

      Hi Experts,

       

      I was asked an interesting question by my collegue for which I answered him but he wasn't convinced. I wanted to check if my answer was right too...

       

      I have a PC which is part of Vlan 10. the port on which the pc is configured is configured as follows

       

      switchport mode access

      switchport access vlan 10.

       

      That PC now receives a tagged traffic with vlan 10. What does the Switch / Host do with this traffic?

       

      My answer was: the tag gets removed when it is sent out to the ports in Vlan 10 but he said that he somehow manages to send the tagged traffic . then I said since the tag is Vlan 10 and the switchport also is a part of vlan 10 I said that it would process the traffic.

       

      but looks like he tried that and he said it would not. can somebody tell me what would happen in this case?

       

      did i go wrong in my explanation / understanding?
