Bridging traffic on HP2530 or IP based filtering on HP2910

Can the switch HP 2910al, restrict traffic coming to it based on it's IP/subnet settings without using the routing functionality? Or is it possible to configure something like HP 2530 (layer 2) to bridge traffic?


We have the switch currently configured to 2 VLANs (VLAN1, VLAN10). The only reason for the VLANs is to limit network traffic going to one VLAN (say VLAN10) to maintain high throughout in that network. It is trunked with another switch that connects to a larger network (say VLAN10, VLAN1 and VLAN20).

Is there a way to limit VLAN20 traffic going into VLAN10 and VLAN1 (as currently configured) purely based on IP if I were to remove the VLAN settings on that switch?

The switch the traffic is coming from is HP 2530, which I has less functionality anyway. But is there a way to configure that to bridge traffic?

(Switching the two switches would work, but physically not feasible :/)

VLANs separate traffic at Layer2.

For traffic to leave one VLAN to enter another VLAN, it needs to be done on a Layer3 interface - a router or an SVI on a Layer2 switch.

If you were trying to prioritise traffic in one VLAN, you would use QoS on the physical ports.

If you were trying to restrict access between the VLANs you would implement ACLs or firewalling on the Layer3 device that does the routing between those VLANs.
