We use VoIP at on our network and I have tried to use Vlans to seperate broadcasts.
What I have is 3 HP Procurve 2524 switches. Each port on each switch is a member of Vlan 20 and vlan 40 as well as the default vlan 1.
Vlan 20 = data
vlan 40 = voice
What I want to do is have every port a member of vlan 20 and 40 only and not use vlan 1.
But when I do this the IP phones work fine but no client on vlan 20 can connect to another. I've tried connecting a client machine on a port which is vlan 20 only to a server on another port which is vlan 20 only. They cant even ping each other.
But when reverting back to vlan 1 (default) they work fine.
Anyone tell me what it is I am doing wrong or what needs changing?
