Possible to use a tagged vlan for connecting to controller on ENET 0?

It's maybe a kind of a silly question but I couldn't find the answer yet: Is it possible to use a tagged vlan (instead of untagged native vlan) on the uplink port ENET 0 of an AP to connect to it's controller? If yes, how to configure this, particularly with release 3.4.x?

Thank you for your help in advance!

The AP's as far as i know don't do tagging. the only way we could do it was to set the port on the switch in the closet that the AP runs to to an access port.

The APs understand .1q tagging, but as far as I know, they only communicate on their native (untagged) VLAN. You can set the native vlan in the AP system profile.

The reason the APs understand the tagged packets from other VLANs is so that they can learn MAC addresses for things like rogue and router discovery.

Tagging on E0

Communication over a Tagged Enet0 port (aka. Uplink port) will be available in a future AOS release. I have used the feature in Beta and it works well.
