How would I create vlans on a powerconnect 5324 and route individual IP's to it
Posted on 2008-10-25
There are two parts here. Is this the right solution and if so, how to do it. We have 10 seperate networks on our premises. I am setting up approximately 200 users to have remote access to these networks. Each of the 200 users must access only one of the internal networks. Each user can have a static IP or an IP in a particular range. My ISP is positioning a dedicated CISCO Router and a 1MB data line at our premises through which the remote users will access us, and which will then be connected to our PowerConnect 5324. I considered setting up 10 vlans on the PowerConnect and having each vlan part of each of the 10 internal networks. Then using the Powerconnect to route each user or group of users to the required vlan / network by thier IP numbers. Having not worked with Powerconencts before, I would appreciate advice on the feasability of this scenario and a practical "how to" if this is the best way.
