Re: VLAN beginner


If you kept ports 10,11 & 12 in one Vlan, they can talk to each other.

Also, Source port filters is a good solution in this case, check the following link for more information and useful examples:


Routing can be enabled by issuing the command: ip routing , in the global config prompt:

SW3500# config
SW3500(config)# ip routing

Good Luck !!!

second question:
