I am trying to set up a classroom network for a computer science class I am involved with. I wish to set up a closed environment within the school district network, so students can practice managing their own DHCP/DNS and not worry about effecting the performance of the district network. Currently I have a Cat2960-24-S and no router. Can I make this classroom environment work on a minimal budget?
Okay, would they be able to get out to the internet? I would like the students to be able to create something along the lines of a small office with DHCP, exchange, and possibly vpn (that would depend on the cooperation I would get from the school's IT people.)
It's not clear from your post as to whether this 2960 switch will be dedicated to the students or whether they will share it with other school users ?
The 2960 is a L2 switch only so it won't route. However a L2 switch will still support multiple L2 vlans and broadcasts are contained within a vlan. So you can select a group of ports for the students and allocate them all to a dedicated vlan ie.
2960(config)# vlan 10
2960(config-if)# name students
2960(config)# int range fa0/4 - 10
2960(config-if)# switchport access vlan 10
The above config would create a new vlan 10 and allocate ports fa0/4 - 10 into vlan 10.
The 2960 would just be for the students, I've been doing some research online. If I put that switch behind a 850 series router, would that allow me to set up my simulated work environment with internet access?
