Configuring VLANs on Dell Switches
Posted on 2008-06-13
Here is the situation: I have configured a sonicwall DMZ to run on 192.168.7.0-254. I have currently attached a 5port netgear switch, accessing a sonicwall on a DMZ port, for two POE and two SonicWall Access points. I have a patch panel in the same room that covers 1/2 of the building and it is linked to a second patch panel by a fiber line. I would like to install an additional access point to the second half of the building.
The problem is I will have to run a cable for it to be plugged into the 5port netgear switch to access the DMZ.
I have Dell Managed Switches (Dell powerconnect 2748) capable of VLANs in the both parts of the building. So theoretically I should be able to create VLAN that will be running through the whole building by fiber line and going to the 5port netgear switch.
I need some help configuring the VLANs can someone give me a step by step configuration? So port 48 can only talk to port 24 on the other side of the building? Port 48 will be plugged into the 5port netgear switch and port 24 will be connected to the 3rd sonicwall access point.
Thanks in advance,
