Configure new dlink dgs-1248 switch
Posted on 2009-04-22
We currently have many unmanaged switches. I'm adding a 48 port dlink and configuring mutliple vlans. I have created vid 01 for port one and assigned it pvid 01. I have created vid 02 for dmz servers, port 2-16 and made pvid 02. Ports 17-34 are for internal systems, vid 03 and pvid 03. Ports 35-48 are for a dedicated backup network, vid 04 and pvid 04. All vid's are configured as untagged, other than backup vid 04 which i have marked as tagged.
My confusion is from the vid, pvid, and tagging, what effect my current setup will have on traffic. My goal is to segment dmz, internal and backup traffic. I would like only backup traffic on ports 35-48 and all others dropped there. A firewall, already configured, will be connected to the individual vlans 02 and 03, one each for dmz and internal vlans. Is this the correct setup for what I want to do? How do the pvid setings effect traffic on these switches? WHat about tagging?
