2 port-VLANs for one terminal !

Hello,

I would like to create an administrations network that would be transparent to the rest of the network. That is why I wanted to create a specific VLAN for the administrated terminals (servers and aministration PCs). Then, one server will have 2 interfaces, each interface belonging a different VLAN.

Is it possible?

In terms of security, is it acceptable? I mean somebody that could control the server would be able to enter the Administration VLAN ? What could I do to avoid that?

Thank you in advance for your answers,

Yours,

Simpel

Re: 2 port-VLANs for one terminal !

Having two vlans one for data and one for administration is the good idea-

If you are routing across the vlans, then you can put the access list to control it. Plus you can configure the access list on the vty line- telnet to limit the switch to access from only particular PC. You have password on the Switches, so there is also additional sercurity , usuaully this is enough but if you want more security, lock the workstation in the closet.
