Setting up 2 VLAN's over fibre backbone
Posted on 2006-05-09
I've got a question about setting up VLAN's on 3Com switches.
We've got two locations connected with a fibre backbone. (Both locations use the same subnet). On both locations a 3Com 4228G switch is used.
I want to set up a VLAN for a couple of pc's which are broadcasting quite a bit. I'm thinking about creating a VLAN 2 for these pc's and use the 3Com default VLAN 1 for the other clients. However.....what about my fibre backbone. Do I have to configure these fibre ports to be a member of both VLAN's to let both VLAN's communicate over the backbone? How do I do this?
So in short.....both locations use VLAN 1 and VLAN 2, how do I configure the backbone ports?
