Routed VLAN Implementation

I am new to Cisco, having only particpated in two training sessions.

I am in the process of adding a routed VLAN into our current design. I'm hoping I can get confirmation from an expert on my design.

Current config. is made up of a Cisco 1700 with a WAN interface and LAN interface (10.1.28 --- 2950 core sw --- 6 2950 access switches on one level and 3 on another level. The 6 2950 access switches need to be configured with VLAN 2 and configured on own ip subnet (10.28/16). To accomplish this a layer 3 2811 with a trunk to the core sw.

FA 0/0 ip address

FA 0/1 ip address

ip helper address (DHCP SERVER)

Configure VTP domain, dot1.q trunk, Server mode on core sw and FA 0/x as VLAN 2 with dot1q trunck to FA 0/0 to 2811.

6 2950 ASW's in VTP Domain, VTP client in VLAN 2.

Am I missing anything here, am I totally off or what. I would appreciate any suggestions, observations or comments.



Re: Routed VLAN Implementation


i prefer to bring 2 points here one is with Cisco 1721 you can do intervlan routing that too with IP Plus ios set and also 2811 which you have pointed as L3 and u can have different subinterfaces created on that Cisco 2811 router for intervlan routing purpose.

Also if possible do post out a sample diag representing the setup ur planning out over there.

Again i dont think u can make 2811 as a VTP server here..which i feel ur considering as a core switch.

Re: Routed VLAN Implementation

Here is a rough diagram of what I would like to do.

If you need additional info, please let me know.

The only piece of hardware I will be adding is the 2811.

Thanks for you support.
