By using port isolation function, you can achieve the goal of preventing PCs under different ports communicating with each other without configuring VLAN.

How to configure

Step1: Open your browser and log in the web interface of you switch.

Step2: please go to Switching->Port->Port Isolation->Port Isolation Config.

Port: Choose a port (assume it is port 1) you need to configure.

Forward Portlist: choose ports to which packets from port 1 can be forwarded.

Note: Since communications are bidirectional, if you want hosts under port 1 to communicate with hosts under port 2, you need both port1’s forward portlist allow port 2 and port2’s forward portlist allow port 1.

An example:


PC1 connect to port 1, PC2 connect to port 2, PC3 connect to port 3, server A connect to port 4, server B connect to port 5.


PC1, PC2, PC3 can’t communicate with each other, PC1 can access both server A and server B, PC2, PC3 can only access server A.

The configuration process is as follows:

Step1: Open the browser and log in the management-page of the switch.
