I do not know whether this belongs here as I am unable to a more suitable category.

Cut long story short. I'm now creating a new network which consists of maybe 7-8 clients + servers + nms, and I wish to put them into different vlan by using a Layer 3 Switch so I can do away the router.

I understand that Cisco 3750 and 3560 series allows me to do this, and also use the NoSwitchPort command to switch off the switch ports, and use each port as a independent port that can be control using ACL.

My question: Due to cost constraint, are there any HP Procurve switches which can do similiar things and yet cheaper. Any recommendations will be useful.

The Procurve 2824 apparently doesn't even support RIP routing, nor the equivalent of Cisco's ACLs, so you'd have to go with the 3400cl for this functionality.  But the 3400cl is about the same price as a Cisco 3560 or 3750 with the SMI image (supports RIP v1 & 2 & static routes).  With a small price difference between the 3400cl & the lowest-priced 3560/3750's, I'd go with Cisco instead.  I don't know about the Procurve, but Cisco's 3560 & 3750 models process ACLs in hardware, so you don't lose any performance when applying ACLs to your traffic.

FYI: a question like this would be best posted to the Routers/Switches topic area.

cheers
