I need some advice on setting up a network that requires 5 different vlans. I have two layer 2 switches and a layer 3 switch. (The layer 3 switch will then be connected to a firewall which then goes to the ISP router), but I only need help first on the switches and how to configure them.
This is my setup so far
vlan 10- IT - 10.25.10.0
vlan 20- Wareshouse - 10.25.20.0
vlan 30-Sales - 10.25.30.0
vlan 40-Exec - 10.25.40.0
vlan 50-Servers - 10.25.50.0
I need to make a default gateway for each network.
Do I make another vlan for management (like 10.25.60.0) and make interface vlan .61 and .62 for the 2 layer 2 switches to login and manage?
Where do I set the default gateways for all 5 subnets, on the layer 3 switch? On the layer 3 switch do I use the interface vlan id ip address for each subnet? The default gateway for the entire network will be the inside interface of the firewall.
Just need some guidance on this.
