Setup Question for RV320

Hi All,

Im in the process of replacing a setup of older Cisco PIX firewalls for a small retail chain with four RV320s, one at each location.

My questions are simple but I just want to double check a few things:

  • One site is the corporate office where we run Active Directory, Exchange, AS400, etc. and will be the Home Base so to speak. Should the RV320 at this location have the VLANs for all the other sites setup on it or is that necessary?
    • Example, Site A is VLAN 10 (, Site B is VLAN 20 ( and Site C is VLAN 30 ( Home Base is VLAN 1 ( Does the router at Home Base need each LAN segment setup in it's config, or does it matter?
  • With each site using a different VLAN do I need to enable Inter VLAN Routing to allow communications between each site?

Any other advice about these devices would be greatly appreciated.

Setup Question for RV320

Dear Derek,

Thank you for reaching the Small Business Support Community.

I do not see any problem to accomplish your needs with the RV320, and that VLAN setup looks good specially if you are looking to allow/deny inter VLAN communication among the different sites, another feature that would help is the Firewall>Access Rules, where you can permit/deny access to/from an IP or IP range for the servers in particular. I suggest you using a class C IP private address range since these Small Business devices where intended so.

If the four locations are going to be connecting to each other via IPSec VPN, notice you'll need static public IP addresses on the sites WAN interfaces, or Dynamic DNS. 

Just in case and to give you a better idea of the configuration interface, below is a link for a simulator;

Please do not hesitate to reach me back if there is any further assistance I may help you with.
