VLAN - ACL!!

Hello

I have a pc in my trust that is not a trust pc. Therefore I want the user to be able to access the internet, get the IP address from DHCP and be able to resolve the hostname in DNS. But I don’t want the pc to have access to anything else on our network. I am thinking of creating a separate vlan and assign the specific ports on a switch to this vlan. But I don’t want this vlan to be able to communicate with any other vlans on the same switch or allow access to anything else in our network.

I am looking for suggestions on how I could configure the access control list and vlan itself. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Many thanks,
Rita

Re: VLAN - ACL!!

What kind of switch do you have ?
Best is just to place that pc in a sperate vlan and make the firewall route that person to the internet. And make the firewall proxying the dhcp requests to your dhcp server.

So your thought is pretty ok.
