Ok please bare with me on this as this is pretty new.
First od all our local lan is all on the default VLAN 1 setup.
I have just replaced our external HP unmanaged switch (sits outside of internal lan) with a new HP 1800G ProCurve managed switch which is not connected to lan. Basically our ISP's router and external port on our Cisco ASA5510 firewall plus a couple of other devices sit on this switch. But I want to be able to manage this from the interanl lan.
I have given the new HP 1800G ProCurve switch a local IP (172.31.5.10).
Do I just need to create a VLAN 2 on this switch place all device ports on this VLAN apart from one port (8) leave it in the default VLAN 1 and then plug that into a switch on our lan? Will this enable me to then manage it without physically plugging into this switch?
I hope that makes sense.
Inside port on Cisco 5510>
Outside port on Cisco 5510>
External Switch(HP 1800G ProCurve)> ISP Router + other devices i.e. Video Conference device>
And would I be able to make these changes on the fly? Or would it take down anything by creating VLAN's and assigning ports.
Thanks in advance,
