Hello

we want to use vlan tagging via wireless controller. The Management vlan should be untagged and the Client should be tagged.

the ExtremeWireless (IdentiFi) has the option to tag vlans. But all traffic falls into the untagged (native). An Extreme access point is connected to a Cisco Switch. Is there a Special configuration nessesary for the Cisco Switch to build a trunk to the access point?

Thanks for any help.

No, there is nothing special, you just need to do it right.

The B@AP topologies for users just need to be tagged, the port the ap is plugged in to should be tagged as well for the same VLAN ID.

@Hyde: This configuration is done for the Client traffic. The Management port for the access point should be in another vlan. The port on the Cisco Switch is configured as trunk with the client vlan id as trunk vlan and the Management vlan as native vlan (untagged). Is this correct?

Correct.
