I am having issues setting up vlans on either the switch or pfSense.
I have setup VLAN 11 on pfsense, and configured the interface with IP address

I have created the firewall rule to allow all traffic from VLAN 11 Net to !RFC1918 addresses
I have also created a rule to allow all ICMP to "This Firewall"

On the switch, i have setup the VLAN:

vlan database
vlan 11
vlan name 11 "Management"

And also configured the first 2 ports

interface 0/1-0/2
vlan participation include 11
vlan tagging 11

I cannot ping the firewall on from the switch

I setup the networking on the proxmox host as follows:

allow-vmbr0 enp5s0f0
iface enp5s0f0 inet manual
ovs_type OVSPort
ovs_bridge vmbr0

allow-vmbr0 vlan11
iface vlan11 inet static
netmask 24
ovs_type OVSIntPort
ovs_bridge vmbr0
ovs_options tag=11
#Management VLAN

auto vmbr1
iface vmbr inet static
bridge-ports eno1
bridge-stp off
bridge-fd 0

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet manual
ovs_type OVSBridge
ovs_ports enp5s0f0 vlan11
#VLAN Traffic

I cannot ping the firewall on from the proxmox host on, and also cannot ping the proxmox host from the firewall or the switch.
