I am newbie in the world of VLANs. Our current set up doesn't use VLANs but we are migrating to an VMware ESX environment that requires VLANs. We have a PIX 515E on our current network and we want to replace the unmanaged switch with a Catalyst 3560 for the VLAN component. Now, my questions are:
1. How do we configure the PIX 515E for the VLAN Trunk?
2. Do we configure the catalyst switch as the VTP server and the PIX as the VTP client?
3. What are the options that we can do so that there's minimal changes on the PIX?
I have also attached a diagram.
I just want to have a clear understanding on how to implement VLANs because these are all new to me. I have downloaded the reference guide for configuring the catalyst for VLANs (I just don't understand some of the components like - DTP, IEEE802.1Q, etc)
Thank you in advance...
