We have a phone system that we access via a laptop and crossover cable from the laptop to the NIC on the phone system. We can have the installer of the system to setup the phone system on our LAN so that we can access it from our computers on the LAN. Needless to say they will charge us $150 to come and do a 15 min job. They will need a static LAN IP, subnet and gateway. I hope virtual LAN is the correct thing I'm looking for.
Well I was wondering if I could keep the settings the system already has and create a virtual LAN and connect to the system. The system has a IP of 172.16.0.10. and a subnet of 255.255.255.0 and no gateway. You will then plug in a cross over cable from laptop to NIC and access the interface of the system via IE browser (http://172.16.0.10). Can I make a VLAN and keep these settings and plug the system into the VLAN and access the system that way? I hope this makes a little sense. We have a DFL 200 DLink Firewall Router. I dont see doc on creating VLAN in this firewall, so I don't know if it has the ability but I wanted to first get expert advice.

Correct, this device does not have this capability; without involving any additional cost for additional equipment, just assign an IP and subnet mask from your current local LAN. You do not have to assign a default gateway, this will ensure that the device is not able to access the Internet. This would be the best solution to get you access without have to use a laptop and crossover cable.
