VLAN help

Hello all. I have a Procurve 5406vl switch with a default address scheme of 192.168.32.0/22. I have a fiber connection on Port C21 that connects to a Procurve 1800 switch in another building. On that switch, the default address scheme is 192.168.1.1/24. How do I make it so the pc's between the switches can "talk"? I have never setup a VLAN before, so try to be as specific as possible.

Thank you!

Hi Mark,
at the 5406vl

conf
vlan 100
ip addre 192.168.1.2/24
untagged c21
exit
ip routing
exit
wr mem

then all your clients and systems attached to the 1800, including the 1800, need the 192.168.1.2 as their default gateway.
and all your clients in the 192.168.32.0/22 subnet needs the ip of the 5406 (in the 192.168.32.0/22 vlan) as their default gateway. now all pcs can talk to eachother.

to make sure your clients can still get to the internet you need to add the following route at the 5406

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0

and at that router you need a route for the subnet of the 1800, something like

ip route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0

depends on the syntax of the router!
