Makoto,

The behavior is standard for interoperability purposes.

Makoto,

It depend of the config on the port.

by “default” if nothing is configured, you should have vlan 1 untagged, so nothing tagged will go through

Mig,
I appreciate your answer.
So, is it right in thinking that IEEE standards define the behavior "drop" ?
Or does the behavior depend on vendor ?
