    Hi @ichwan zoelverdy ,

    If you configure multiple VLANs and want communication to occur between them, you'll need to configure the network devices to allow that.
    You will need the following to configure VLANs:
    A physical network adapter and driver that supports 802.1q VLAN tagging.
    A physical network switch that supports 802.1q VLAN tagging.
    On the host, you'll configure the virtual switch to allow network traffic on the physical switch port. This is for the VLAN IDs that you want to use internally with virtual machines. Next, you configure the virtual machine to specify the VLAN that the virtual machine will use for all network communications.

    Best regards
