Basically what the title says. Here is the layout:
1. Comcast modem -> home router/default gateway (linksys e2000) - 192.168.1.1 -> unmanaged netgear hub
1a. from unmanaged hub, everything has a 192.168.1.x address with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 (PCs/laptops/wifi, etc)
2. From unmanaged hub, to the cisco 2950 switch
2a. setup vlan1 to be a 192.168.0.x network (default gateway 192.168.0.1) with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.248
2b. Cisco switch has a Dell Poweredge 2950 II & a Rackable systems JBOD system, was going to set the IP of VMware ESXi as 192.168.0.3, the web server as 192.168.0.4
So far I have gotten to logging into the Cisco switch and setting the vlan1 as IP address/subnet mask as shown above. But when I set the static IP in the ESXi/web server, they are not getting connectivity. This may have something to do with routing from the home router because when I try and do static routes, it won't let me do it from a 192.168.0.x network. Not sure where to start, starting from a novice to intermediate perspective, but had some spare parts and wanted to start this project. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, and let me know if you need more information.
Given the equipment you are using, do you have dual NATs right now? Is the IP address on the outside of your Linksys in the private range (192.169.x.x, 10.x.x.x, 172.16-31.x.x)? If so, the first thing I would look at is eleminating the dual NAT. You can still use a Linksys router as an AP by pluging in from the LAN side to the ZyWall (and most likely disabling DHCP in favor of the ZyWall's server).
While I don't know that much about the ZyWall, the data sheet indicates that it supports multiple virutal interfaces on the inside. You could just use two of the LAN interfaces as two separate networks, with two virtual interfaces on the ZyWall. Presumably you could then setup whatever access control rules you wanted from that point.
LAN 1: 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0
LAN 2: 192.168.2.0 255.255.255.0
However, this completeley negates the use of the 2950 as more than a dumb switch
If your really wanted to have your 2950 in use, doing something, you could setup the device with two VLANs on it, and have it trunk to a port on the ZyWall (assuming it supported it).
