Workstations in VLAN 1 can only communicate with other workstations in VLAN 1. This means that workstations connected to the same switch in this example cannot communicate directly with each other. Communications between workstations within each VLAN must pass through the trunk link to the other switch. Additional facts regarding trunking and VLANs are as follows: Access ports are connected to endpoint devices (such as workstations), while trunk ports are connected to other switches. An access port can be a member of only a single VLAN. Trunk ports are members of all VLANs on the switch by default. Any port on a switch can be configured as a trunk port.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
