Hello,

So I have this Cisco Switch: SRW2048-K9-NA. When I log into the Web GUI, I am provided the two options mentioned above for VLAN Management. I have fiddled with the two options and they seem identical to me. Is there really a difference, maybe better flexibility? I don't really see one and would like to know if I am missing something here.

Thanks

Only thing I can think of is 'port to vlan' is where you configure the port statically to one vlan.
vlan to port might be where depending on what is plugged in to the port determines what vlan it gets assigned. This would entail having a vlan managmement policy server to check what was plugged in to assign it the correct vlan.
