GS1200-8 - Management VLAN (Firmware V1.00(ABME.4)C0)
In firmware V1.00(ABME.4)C0 for the GS1200 switch series there is a new feature implemented:
- Management VID is VLAN 1 only.
According to the wording it seems the management VLAN is fix on VLAN 1 and this VLAN cannot be changed by the owner.
While limiting management to a single VLAN is quite desireable, it is suboptimal to limit it to VLAN 1 without the possibility to change this setting according to local needs. Actually, it is best practise to move away management from VLAN 1 (which is the default VLAN and therefore prone to unwanted traffic/attacks). Furthermore it is best practise to not use VLAN 1 at all due to security considerations.
I'd like to open a feature request to enable the administrator to individually set a management VLAN as is the case with the GS1900 series from Zyxel.
