routing appletalk accross vlans
Posted on 2004-09-18
I am MAC illeterate. Having recently started working for a school district I have been thrown into more Macs than I have ever seen.
I have serveral schools in which we are using a mix of appletalk and windows. Some have appletalk servers and some are running appletalk shares on windows servers. I am starting to vlan my schools in preperation for converting to voice over IP. I have been having issues at the first school I have completed with the macs on seperate vlans connecting to the appletalk servers. The information I find on ciscos site is only directed at confiuring the routers but does not address what I need to do on the mac's and I have been having a difficult time finding a comprehensive document describing how to configure both the routers and the Mac clients. I am primarly dealing with OS9.x and now we are getting 10.3 clients.
Can anyone pull togather all the pieces for me or reference me to documetation that will get me up to speed on appletalk zones and the configuration that needs to be done on both client and routers, some info on troubleshooting appletalk would be great. Also if you can reccomend any books that are good reference books. Not looking to become a mac expert just looking to get to the point where I can setup and troubleshoot networking issues.
