If you use vLans, then you can use whatever IP subnet you want.  If you do inter-vlan routing then this may be a problem.

Why on earth do you have a subnet encompassing the entire 10.x.x.x range?  Seems crazy.

I only used 10.x.x.x as an example.  Of course we don't use the entire thing.  Just theoretical.

How can I tell if inter-vlan routing is enable for a specific vlan?

If routing is enabled on the core switch and there are no acls, then it should route. If using eigrp or ospf, then the network subnets of each vlan need to be included for routing to take place. A simple ping to other vlan members should tell you if they talk.

I actually don't want inter-vlan routing to occur,  I want to totally segment a device from the all other VLANs and make it accessible via port 80 from the outside world and allow FTP from the segmented device to the outside world.

Use acls on the vlan you create and if using a routing protocol (eigrp or ospf) don't include that network.
