I have a Cisco Catalyst 2950 and I want to learn how to create 3 vlans on it.
Vlans, if configured correctly, can make it act like 3 separate switches, right?
So right now I have FastEthernet 0/22 hooked up to a 871W router that has DHCP enabled, the port is part of vlan1 which has an address of 192.168.3.75 and if it matters the router's address is 192.168.3.1.
I currently have put Ports 1-8 in Vlan3, Ports 9-16 in Vlan2, and Ports 17-24 are in the default Vlan1.
I want to divide it up between the 3 vlans so that I can isolate each of these network segments. The only way I want them to be connected is when I take a cable from a port in vlan1 to a port in vlan2, or vlan2 to vlan3, etc.
I don't know where to go from here. I read the guide at cisco's website but it doesn't really help me, just confused me.
I want to be able to plug vlan1 into vlan2, then vlan2 into vlan3, then take an ethernet cable between a port in vlan3 to my laptop and have it receive a DHCP address from the router. I want the vlan interface addresses to be static, but for it to pass DHCP through to the ports I hook computers up to. That makes sense, right?
And the reason I'm doing it is for practice, just in case it doesn't seem practical to you guys - I want to learn this stuff.
