my existing LAN set up have a subnet: 126.96.36.199/24. It is a flat network...no VLAN configured. I want to configure a VLAN, say VLAN 2 with a different subnet: 188.8.131.52/28. VLAN 2 needs to communicate to file servers belonging to the subnet 184.108.40.206/24.
These file servers should be both accessible to the two subnets VLAN1 hosts and VLAN2 hosts. Traffic from VLAN2 is only within VLAN2 and VLAN1..no outside traffic.
I have a core CAT3550 L3switch where I plan to set up as a vtp server. Create VLAN2. At this switch, the file servers are connected.
Another switch, CAT2960, is cascaded and connected via trunk(802.1Q) to CAT3550.
At CAT2960, I have configured 4 ports for VLAN 2 and 1 port for trunking to CAT3550.
-Please help me to verify if my design is feasible.
-Is my assumption correct that native/default VLAN 1
(in my LAN's case my host and server subnet--220.127.116.11/24) can communicate to VLAN 2 subnet--18.104.22.168/28
please refer to the attached text file for my proposed config. Thanks in advance!
