Procurve Switches - VLANS

Vlans across four switches

Have a 1810-48G switch that has 3 1810-24G switches connected to it via GBIC's fibre. I need to setup 5 vlans on these switches to create 5 different networks.

 

Looking at:

 

ID: 1 DEFAULT_VLAN

 20 Library

 30 Lighting

 40 Sound

 50 Guest

 

1810-24              1810-24              1801-48                      1810-24

XXXX -  - - - - - - - XXXXX - - - - - -   XXXXXXX - - - - - - - - -XXXXX

sw1                       sw2                     sw3                               sw4

 

As mentioned, there need to be 5 vlans.  I need to make sure I get three vlans from sw1 to sw4. Is it just a matter of creating the vlans and allocating the switch ports to the vlans?

Thanks,

 

Matt

Yes... thats pretty much it.  The fibre links will carry the vlan traffic and keep it seperate for you

For individual devices, yes. For the links that connect the switches together, you will need to "tag" the frames with the VLAN numbers.

I believe this switch is managed through a graphical interface so you'll have to go to the VLAN configuration page and select the VLAN that you want to carry between the switches. Then on the port that connects to the other switch, tag it by putting a "T" in the box for that port.
