Adding a VIF to an Ethernet Interface

Follow the steps below to create a virtual interface with a VLAN ID of 10 and address 10.0.10.1/24 on the eth1 interface:

GUI: Access the EdgeRouter Web UI.

Dashboard > Add Interface > Add VLAN

VLAN ID: 10
Interface: eth1
Address: Manually define IP address > 10.0.10.1/24

The above configuration can also be set using the CLI:

CLI: Access the Command Line Interface.You can do this using the CLI button in the GUI or by using a program such as PuTTY.
configure
set interfaces ethernet eth1 vif 10 address 10.0.10.1/24 
commit ; save ; exit

You can verify the configuration with the show interfaces command.

show interfaces 
Interface    IP Address                        S/L  Description                 
---------    ----------                        ---  -----------                 
eth1         -                                 u/u                              
eth1.10      10.0.10.1/24                      u/u  

Adding a VIF to the Switch0 Interface

ATTENTION: This configuration only applies to models with a built-in switch (ER-12 / ER-10X / ER-X / ER-X-SFP / ERPoE-5 / EP-R6).

Follow the steps below to create a virtual interface with a VLAN ID of 10 and address 10.0.10.1/24 on the switch0 interface:

GUI: Access the EdgeRouter Web UI.

Dashboard > Add Interface > Add VLAN

VLAN ID: 10
Interface: switch0
Address: Manually define IP address > 10.0.10.1/24

The above configuration can also be set using the CLI:

CLI: Access the Command Line Interface.You can do this using the CLI button in the GUI or by using a program such as PuTTY.
configure
set interfaces switch switch0 vif 10 address 10.0.10.1/24
commit ; save

You can verify the configuration with the show interfaces command.

show interfaces 
Interface    IP Address                        S/L  Description                 
---------    ----------                        ---  -----------                 
switch0      -                                 u/u
