Dell switch setup advice

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
I have a Dell PowerConnect 6224. Here's my end goal:
To have 2 VLANs (110 and 111), both of which have internet access. The ranges will be and, both with netmask
To have ssh access to these VLANS from my internal network. Internal network has range of, mask

I believe I need a trunk port out of the switch to my firewall on the internal network. Can I then just control access from my firewall? How would this work, would I assign an ip (on my internal range) to the trunk port to allow this?
