I have inherited a bit of a sticky one, hope someone can help. Situation: Network 192.168.0.0/16, with servers, printers, workstations (on def vlan 1) Need to add several VLANS for other devices (eg timeclocks etc). I have already determined having eg VLAN2 = 192.168.100.x/16 is not good (as all devices can still see each other in both VLANS, and neither can I do 192.168.100.x/24, as the /16 then is the problem)
- Have several L2 (Procurve 5406) switches, and devices will be spread across these switches in diff VLANs
- IP routing enabled on all switches
- This is what I need to do:
-> several host in VLAN1 need access to all hosts in VLAN2
-> hosts in VLAN2 need to talk to each other, and to one host in VLAN1
-> Later adding VLAN3, would need the same as above, but, no access to VLAN2
Can you advise whether this config looks do-able?
VLAN1 = 192.168.0.1->15.254/20 (/21 might also do, but I have a lot of units to consider for the "production" network) VLAN2 = 192.168.100.0/24 VLAN3 = 192.168.101.0/24
This of course would mean a change to the current /16 production network, but is not a major issue as only servers, rest are DHCP for workstations.
Thanks in advanceE
