how to create 2 vlan with one port connected to both

Hi,

 

my setup is default vlan with all ports untagged. I need to create a second vlan (vlan2) and add 6 ports to it. but i need 1 port that can access both vlans.

 

default vlan 10.0.1.0/24

switch is 5406zl 10.0.1.10

 

Do i need to enable ip routing?

 

I have the vlan2 setup with 1 port tagged.

 

any help is much appreciated!

Computers for the most part talk to untagged ports.  You will need different IP subnets on each vlan, and turn on IP routing.  A PC on an untagged port in vlan 1 will now be able to talk to a PC on an untagged port on vlan 2.  Make sure you IP the PC's correctly for each vlan.
