Setting Fixed Ip Address on Vlan?

Hello People.

I need some help to create several VLans on my switch.

After reading the admin guide pdf, i still don't understand how to create any simple VLan.

I'm still a newbie.

Can anyone help me with some tutorial or steps (with IE or Mozilla browser) how to create and use VLan, and to connect one VLan to another.

For example,

i need to create 3 VLans.

First Vlan consist of 5 ports (Vlan Name = Red)

Second Vlan consist of 15 ports (Vlan Name  = Green)

Last Vlan consist of the rest of the ports (VLan Name = White)

Thank you so much.

Setting Fixed Ip Address on Vlan?

well, i thought about it since i saw a similar posts on some threads.

I already followed the recorded tutorial from Mr.David Hornstein.

Thanks to him that i managed to create 3 vlan in the switch.

The next step i want to try, is assigning a fixed IP address or even MAC Address to each of the ports.

what i don't understand is what the purpose of tagged and untagged ports in vlan?

can anyone help me?


Setting Fixed Ip Address on Vlan?

If the switch supports Layer 3 routing you assign ip addresses to SVI interface which are created when you create the vlan.

If the switch does not support Layer 3 routing you just assign the ports to respective vlans

e.g  interface fa01

       switchport mode access

       switchport access vlan Red

You assign ip address to your management vlan say Vlan 1

      interface vlan 1

      ip address  x.x.x.x x.x.x.x (replace x with your IP and subnet mask

And you need a router to be able for host in Red to communicate with hosts in Green, or White and vice versa

Hope this helps

In addition to what Eugen ensure that the vlan interface (SVI) status is up / up.

Also to perform inter-vlan routing wihtin the L3 switch, ensure that you enable the routing on the L3 switch. by default the routing is disabled in the L3 switch.

Setting Fixed Ip Address on Vlan?

Well, honestly i'm more familiar with the window navigation from browser and not with the terminal. plus almost all the settings in the manual using that.I never did the settings from the terminal so far,but thanks so much for the replies.

anyway, it seems that my switch doesn't support any routing feature. i've been searching for it in the manual and found nothing of it.

It does mean my ports on one vlan can only communicate within that vlan, doesn't it?

one more thing, can anyone tell me why i can't see the link to set IP Address in my cisco browser. it should be on 'IP Configuration' menu right? but there are only 'DHCP Relay' and 'Domain Name System' menus. Did I miss something here?


Setting Fixed Ip Address on Vlan?

Should be under Additional settings, click Configure --> on left menu scroll down and Aditional is last should be there.

Nope, I even can't find any Configure menu. and here, i added a shot from my browser.

or maybe i should tell you that my cisco product is SG 300-52 Gigabit Switch?

should i use terminal to setup IP Address for my ports?

I've also finished to setup some fixed mac address on my vlan ports. so the only thing remain is to set the ip address on the ports. i've would like to ask one thing though, i want to know about inter-vlan that Mr.Vijay said earlier, what type of cisco switch that can use that feature?

Thanks for the replies.


Re: Setting Fixed Ip Address on Vlan?

Sorry, I thought you were using SDM to manage the switch.

On the switch you can not set an IP on the port. The IP addresses are set on VLANs interfaces and you add ports to the respective VLAN, Check under VLAN Management.

Hope this helps
