Transparent PC port [SOLVED]

RE: Transparent PC port [SOLVED]
Yealink used to have the option "Routed" vs "Bridge" mode for the PC port. In my mind that terminology still makes far more sense than the PC port options they list now.

In any case I expect the underlying function is still the same. When you set it to "VLAN PC" you're telling the phone to create two sub interfaces: one for the phone itself, and one for the PC port, each with their own VLANs. The internet port itself doesn't have any VLAN configured, but the routing on the phone firmware forwards each packet either to the internal port (the phone itself), the PC port, or nowhere depending on what VLAN is tagged in each received packet. When you set it to "Span to PC" my guess is that the phone just leaves the PC Port as untagged/trunk, meaning it passes all received packets out that port.

I don't understand your statement about "For security reasons it would be better to act as a switch". What security are you talking about? You should also check your terminology as I think you've got the terms "Switch" and "hub", mixed up with "router" and "switch".
