I have a router which is connected with a layer 3 switch(3550). On that switch are attached about 20 2950 switches and this number might increase. To increase the bandwith and security of my network i created VLANS. I create subinterfaces on the router interface according to each VLAN. I created also the trunk links between switches and layer 3 switch and the router. My layer 3 switch is running RIP v2 and soon will run EIGRP. It is a base image no ip services.
1. If i run EIGRP on that layer 3 switch and add all the networks for the VLANS, can i have the VLANs work without the encapsulation on the subinterfaces of the Router ?
2. Is there is any other way to run the VLANs more efficient so the router not have to do so much work since the VLANs are increasing.
3. How about the DHCP server. Can i run it on a layer 3 switch.
