Hi all, was getting into the whole networking scene and had to put a stop on it for going back to school for something else, since then i've been aquiring different products that i could build a home lab for when i got back into working on my ccna cert.
The components i have are:
Trendnet patch panel tc-p24c6
Cisco 2950 switch
Cisco 3500xl switch
Cisco 2600 router
Dell power edge r300 server
D-link 2bay cloud storage 2000(dns-320l)
Also have 2 other usb hdd
Main wireless router:
cisco linksys ea3500
And have multiple other misc routers setup around the house as ap's.
Im wanting to setup the server (has x2 500gb hdd - not sure o/s as of yet but open to suggestions on which to use) to run as a central station, where all other pc's, laptops, tablets, etc. Store files. My house is wired with cat 5e in almost every room and have all the ends coming out at the electrical panel in the basement (where my server rack will be).
The cat 5e cables are too short for where i was wanting the rack and wondering if its possible to splice together cat 5e cables to make them longer to reach my rack?
From there, im starting to get lost on how to set up and connect the switchs/routers and server for the best home soho use. I have a small home based web design company that i think id like to have on its own vlan so its only accesible by a few pcs, and have all the rest on another vlan (is it possible to have 1 vlan storage accesable by the other vlan(ie. Vlan A can access vlan A and vlan B files, but vlan B can only access vlan b files) or does that defeat the purpose of using vlans?)
I'd like to keep security a fairly top priority as well. With all the crap that goes on these days you never know what may happen.
If there is another piece of hardware that i should get that will would make this all run smoother?
Also in the future i'd like to add some cisco ip phones into the house, so if theres something i can do now to prepare the system to accept those in the future i'd do it now.
Thanks in advance for any help/insight you guys can send my way!
