Not reallly enough information to give a good answer.  Don't know what brand switches, routers, etc. How you access those devices (CLI or GUI).

Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.

Wow... That's like saying "Never driven a car before. What do I need to know?"
:-)

Is this going to be for phones only or will there be PCs? Are the PCs connected to the switch or to the phones?

So, untagging means that the port is part of the VLAN?
Trunk is used to add another switch (local or remote) to the VLAN?

There are still some variables, but something along the lines of:

conf t
vlan 13 (substitute "13" for whatever VLAN you're using for your voice traffic)
 untagged 1-12, 15, 20 (this would be if phones were connected to ports 1-12, 15 & 20)
end

Open in new window

And each vlan has its own virtual static IP?

Not sure what you mean by that.

Each VLAN is a separate IP network. So VLAN 7 may have an IP address of 192.168.1.0/24 and VLAN 12 may be 192.168.2.0/24.

How the hosts get their addresses is not a factor.

Ok, i don't understand how and why we would allocate an ip to a vlan.
Looking at my 2x HP switches i have, both have vlan1 setup.  Both switches have a single Static ip set.

Where would this ip be located?

I meant the configuration of the switch. There should be a button or tab that allows you to display the full configuration of the switch.

Also, this appears to be a 3Com switch. You did say it was an HP, right?

The screen you're looking at is showing where you set the IP address of the switch. The IP address of the switch is for managing the switch. It has nothing to do with traffic moving between devices in the same VLAN.

But regardless of that, the concepts are still the same. The only difference is that you will be doing this through the GUI. I can't help you with that. I only manage switches with the CLI.
