Hi folks - don't flame me too bad butsome questions rolling around I have to ask on how you do this in the real world.I know how to create vlan etc. But my question is this I have a 4507 Core switch, with 3500XL's as edge devices within the company's IDF's. The network is basically flat but I would like to change that. I have one other vlan that Ihave our wireless ap1220's on that have two SSID's one is an internal SSID to get on the corporate infrastructure and the other is VLAN for a DSL connection for outside our corp network. What I want to do is put our server say on VLAN2 our printers on VLAN10, Wireless Barcode readers on VLAN17 etc etc. What I am really curios about is how do the seperate vlans get thour own IP subnet?
DSL modem dishes out IP address via DHCP. So this means for other VLANS IP addresses I will need to do some work on my DHCP Server on my Windows box. My intenral address scheme for example is 10.10.0.0/16. So my servers IP address are static and I want those on 10.10.1.0/16 then my DHCP for client pc's are 10.10.10.0/16 and my wireless for internal would be 10.10.20.0/16 and the barcode wireless guns as 10.10.17.0/16 and the printers on 10.10.2.0/16
So for wireless I need DHCP,
The printers are static
the client pc's would be dhcp. So can this be pulled off with a 16 bit mask also how does the client know what vlan it belongs to? Would this be some sort of dynamic port setting? Also what other things I need to do in my switch and dhcp server? Also should I make the vore VTP server and the edge devices as VTP clients? I hope that was somewhat clear.. ;)
