Superstack 3 4500 as Router?

Hello Forums,



first, i want to introduce myself. I am very new to Switches and Routers especially with 3com products.I've never worked with this devices before, so lets give it a try.



i would like to set up an router for an testlab without buying a new device. So my question is, is it possible to use a 3Com Superstack 4500 Switch as router for at least 8 Networks?



If yes, could someone point me to a guide for doing this?



 



regards



bytes

Hi,



It' s very simple.



You need create n pc's Vlan-interface in the command line.



"interface Vlan-interface 1



ip address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn"



and repeat this for n. Then the switch route will be different networks....

Hi.



You can work with up to 4 interfaces VLAN (IP interfaces in the 4500 switches). You can create up to 256 VLANs, but only at the Layer 2. The 4500 series does support RIP (dynamic routing protocol) and static routes, but always at the maximum number of 4 IP interfaces.
