Noob question - VLAN Routing on ProCurve 2900

Hi

I wonder if someone can walk me through setting up a 2900 to do the following. I'm out of my depth with this area.

I have an unconfigered 2900 which I want to partition into 2 lans. All IP's are currently in the 192.168.90.x range.
The IP address's of the partitioned off chunk (Vlan?)can be changed to anything suitable.
The new chunk is entirely self contained except for port 7581 trafic from the main to the new bit.

Is it a vlan I need to create?
Can I have only port 7581 passing to the vlan?
How do I do it all?

Sorry to be a pain but I've never set up a vlan before so really apprecuiate some guidance.

Regards
Malcom

A chunk is a piece of something.
In this case the partitioned off part of the switch, be it a Vlan or whatever.

Hi,

Yes, it is a VLAN you want to create and it is standard practice to have seperate subnets for your different VLANs.
You would normally filter the traffic using an ACL but unfortunately it looks like the 2900 doesn't support ACLs (unless you have a 2910?)
Your options are:

- Replace the switch with something that supports ACLs
- Route the VLANs on another switch that supports ACLs (or route them to a firewall)
