Thanx very much for fast responses especially thanks to Peter van Gemert
who give me the direction :)

Hi Tomasz,

You do not need the logical interface. You can create multiple vlans on
the same interface. You would end-up with:
e1000g<vlan>0 like e1000g200 and e1000g300.

I'm not sure about the number of digits to be used for the vlan id and
the interface numbers.

 It worked for me like charm :)

bash-3.00# ifconfig e1000g2000 plumb up
bash-3.00# ifconfig -a
8232 index 1
        inet netmask ff000000
e1000g0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500
index 2
        inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast
        ether 0:30:5:5b:7a:1a
e1000g2000: flags=201000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,CoS> mtu
1500 index 4
        inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast
        ether 0:30:5:5b:7a:1a
bash-3.00# ping is alive

Tommorow I will try to connect to switch and make a "router on a stick"
- limited budged for a HW :).

	Hello Managers,

	I'm having and issue, but after searching on the internet I'm
not sure
	if this is supported by Solaris 10.

	I would like to create logical interface that will be in a
	vlan then the real interface. I mean:
	e1000g0 is  vlan 2
	e1000g0:1 is vlan 3

	Is this possible? Any guides, any experience in this area?
