Configuring ports in vlans on Dell powerconnect 3324 to allow access from the hosts to the router but not other hosts in the same subnet.
Posted on 2006-04-04
I've got a customer (Shared business centre) who is trying to provide access to the router (vlan1) (as well as some shared printers) to everyone in a 192.168.0.0/24 subnet but does not want each of the customers to allow access to each other. I would prefer to have the customers in a unique vlan (especially as some of the customers require multiple ports that need to see each other). The router involved in the equation is simplay a broadband router and is not suitable for inter-vlan routing, and I would like all the devices to be in the same subnet anyways. I've been able to do this with another customer using a baystack bt450, but I have no experience with the Dell powerconnect switchs. I've done some testing with putting customers in different vlans but I can't seem to get the hosts to talk both the router and the other devices in that given vlan.
Any help greatly appreciated.
