Which one is the best model ?

=NET. Equipment=

-Router 2621, OS 12.07,1 ethernet port, 2 fast Ethernet ports

-Switch Catalyst 6513, 8 10/100 48 ports blade

=Servers and workstations equipment=

-300 win95 workstations running ip/ipx

-8 NT 4.0 IP servers (data, apps and windows functionality like pdc, wins, dhcp,etc) 4 Netware 3.x IPXservers

=Premise=

All the users need access to all the servers.

All the users need access to Internet (the 2621 is connected to a firewall via E0/0

==Model 1==

Divide the company in 7 VLANs (50 users each one). 6VLANs for the clients and 1 VLAN for the servers.

All the users VLANs should communicate with the servers VLAN.

User’s VLANs should not “see” the other VLANs.

=Solution for model 1=

Use just one of the FastEthernet-interfaces and create subinterfaces for each vlan

==Model 2==

Divide the users in 6 VLANs (50 users each one).

All the users VLANs should communicate with the server

Users VLANs should not "see" each other.

=Solution for model 2=

Use one of the FastEthernet-interface and create subinterfaces for each user vlans

Use the other one Fastethernet-interface and create a network for the servers.

Re: Which one is the best model ?

Model 2 is better, but "router on a stick" is never a good solution (may be a good Compromise). Perhaps the 2948G-L3 would be a better solution.

Catalyst 2948G-L3 Layer 3 Switch - 48 10/100,2 GBIC Slots WS-C2948G-L3 8 $9,995

Packaged SMARTnet 8x5xNBD -- Category 8 CON-SNT-PKG8 $700

Re: Which one is the best model ?

Hi,

Better to go for an MSFC blade in the 6513, that will solve your future expansion issues also.

Or else the second model is the best, but you may face conjunction if you use router to do inter vlan routing.
