IP Communicator VLAN Requirements

Hi All,

Wondering if anyone has run into a similar problem as what i current face;

We run a large network with multiple vlan's across multiple sites, basically each vlan does not have access to each other, except of course for shared vlan's etc etc. There is also a voice vlan, with 7940's working as expected.

The problem i have is that IP Communicator uses the PC Vlan vs the Voice Vlan for its voice traffic, and therefore there is no voice traffic when calling between Pc's on different vlan's.

Has anyone overcome this problem, that is of course without the need to open up a heap of ports between all vlan's ?


Re: IP Communicator VLAN Requirements

if you have one VLAN with an IP Communicator on it and another VLAN with IP Communicator and these two VLANs are not allowed to communicate with each other, than you will not be able to get the two PCs talking to each other.

you must open the appropriate ports through your VLANs using VACLs.

(that is of course if you have interVLAN routing in place. without it, even VACLs won't help yet)
