I have recently redone the network configuration at home with going with an amd apu device for my router which has OpenWRT 22.03.2 installed on it, a managed switch, and an access point. Everything is working great and i have set up the network and utilized the features in OpenWRT that I want to.
I do have a question on the best practices around the management console for the managed switch. I can only access it on vlan 1, which is the default vlan that it comes with and i cannot change which vlan the management software runs on. My network is defined as vlan 5-9 in OpenWRT. Is it the best practice to dedicate a port on the switch and untag that and set the pvid to 1 or to set up a management vlan set to 1 and use that for accessing the switch management software? If so, should that be a vlan defined in OpenWRT locally or not locally?
Thanks in advance!
