Dell switch setup advice

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?

    The connection to the firewall would indeed need to be trunked to allow all VLAN's access to the firewall.  The firewall would then need sub-interfaces for each VLAN set up so it is aware of the multiple VLANs/subnets.  This would give the firewall an IP in each VLAN, which could be the default gateway for each VLAN, if you want to set it up that way.
