Creating VLAN

Creating VLAN

Here's the layout that I have now (without) LAN2.

ISP---cisco router---HP4104----2650---LAN 1
| |
W2k3 Server |----LAN 2

I realize that I need to setup a VLAN to create LAN2, but do I need to create that same VLAN on the 4104 as well.

Re: Creating VLAN

Unless the 4104 is involved (i.e. does routing or has devices connected to it which need to be assigned to that vlan) you dont have to create the vlan on it.
I suppose the w2k3 server will be connected to the 2650, it seems the forum isnt that great for ascii art.

I dont see a reason to create vlan2 on the 4104 as well.

Re: Creating VLAN

Hi

If you don't need the Vlan2 on the 4100 and no use for it, then don't create it.

And if you are doing routing between these 2 Vlans on the 2600 then make sure you add a route back on the Cisco router for Vlans.

Good Luck !!!
