Hey, i'm new to the concept of vlan and vtp.
I'm triyng to understand its uses and limitations, cause I'm working on my networking classes practices.
Now here's what I'm tring to do and where I'm stuck:
I'm wondering how (or even i it is possible) to manage wich ports of VTP client switches are assigned to a particular VLAN. I mean, let's suppose I have 3 VLAN in server switch, and a bunch of VTP client switches, and I want to assign port a, b, c from client 1 to VLAN 1 and ports p,q,r to VLAN 3; then in client 2 configure ports i,j to vlan 1 and x, y to VLAN 2, and so on...
Is that possible?, how do I make that port (or port range) "X" in switch "A" to VLAN "W" assignment?

VTP only propagates vlan information to each switch, the individual switch ports are configured independently on each switch. VTP won't do it for you.

Say you want to assign Fa0/1 to vlan 2. Do this:

Switch#conf t
Switch(config)#inter fa0/1
Switch(config-if)#switchport access vlan 2

Thats all. Off course the fa0/1 should be in access mode. not trunk.

As previously stated, you can configure which ports are assigned to which VLAN using the code S0lo provided. If you are doing a large group like ports 1-20 look into the "range" command.

VTP will be the protocol that transfers the VLAN information from switch to switch.
