Setting up a 2610's for VoIP and Data

I'm a systems guy with little experience on the network hardware side of things. I know enough to be dangerous.

We just bought an internal VoIP phone system and five ProCurve 2610-PWR's. We only have ONE network drop at each workstation.

I know what I want to accomplish [which is separate voice/data traffic], but not sure how! Is there a best practices guide or even better, a step-by-step guide for the switch/network configuration?

I presume the following:

- Configure two VLAN's
- Phone and Workstations on different network (say 192.168.1.x and 192.168.2.x)
- 2nd DHCP server for phone sub-net
- Use QoS? VLAN tagging? Both?

How does this look in the switch config? Thank you so much

I did find this and it sounds similar to what I am looking to do - although a little hard to understand the grammar.

According to this link, it looks like routing is being set up on the switch? Is that the right? Cent sounds like he knows his stuff. Thanks

Thanks Cenk. I saw that thread and have used it as a guide.

The only difference is, we will continue to use the firewall as the gateway for our desktops instead of routing through the switch.

Re: Setting up a 2610's for VoIP and Data

Cenk,

Here is the config that I have on our primary switch.

Running configuration:

; J9087A Configuration Editor; Created on release #R.11.22

hostname "ProCurve Switch 2610-24-PWR"
interface 1
name "DHCPServer"
exit
interface 2
name "SwitchvoxServer"
exit
interface 4
name "TFTPServer"
exit
snmp-server community "public" Unrestricted
vlan 1
name "Default_Data"
untagged 3,5-28
ip address 10.1.2.248 255.255.255.0
no untagged 1-2,4
exit
vlan 2
name "Voice"
untagged 1-2,4
ip address 10.1.3.1 255.255.255.0
tagged 3,5-24
exit

I can get to the Switchvox device from my machine by adding a routing entry to the 10.1.3.x subnet through 10.1.2.248. The problem is that the phone is not pulling DHCP, its config files from the tftp server, and it is not recognized from the Switchvox server. I know it has to do with the tagging most likely, but I just cannot get it to work.

Any input would be appreciated.

Re: Setting up a 2610's for VoIP and Data

nevermind. I had the phones on a second switch and had the down port untagged on the voice vlan. I changed that and it all seems to be working...

sorry for the bother.
