I have three users in an office that all own their own company. They share resources and the network though. They want to make it so that they are on different networks. Rather than putting in a router between each person and their gateway router, I wanted to just put a switch in their and put them each on their own vlan. If I do this they will all remain on the same subnet I suppose.. I don't see a need to change that. they only have 1-2 computers in each office.

My question is, they have a printer/scanner that they all want to share. It's a network printer. Can I put that printer on it's own vlan and have the other vlans have acces to the printer s'vlan but they couldn't access each other's vlans?

So I would have Client VLAN A, Client VLAN B, Client VLAN C and Printer VLAN D

A, B and C cannot see each other but A, B and C can see "D" and access the printer there.
