Two different VLAN's connected by access port
Posted on 2014-02-05
I have two switches. One I don't have control over which is setup with all of it's access ports set to vlan 14.
My switch is using the default vlan of 1.
They network guy before me connected the switches via an access port. vlan 14 on one side and vlan 1 on the other. This situation is working and they share the same subnet 10.89.101.0/24.
I do not like this setup and I need to create more vlan's on trunk ports.
I was under the impression that I could trunk the ports and ask the owner of the other switch to do the same and just set the native vlan to 14, but that does not work.
How can I get vlan 14 on his switch to communicate with my switch on vlan 1 without changing the subnet and getting away from the connected access ports as the uplink? A lot of the devices have static IP set on them that is connected to his switch on access vlan 14. I hope this makes sense.
NOTE: I will eventually be given access to the other switch if that helps with coming up with a solution here. I have two wireless AP's on his switch that I will need to trunk the port they connect to and send that traffic over to my switch which is my ultimate goal here. The important thing is the devices on vlan 14 cannot change their subnet and neither can the devices on my switch which also use the same subnet.
#switchport access vlan 14 ---------------> PC1: 10.89.101.10/24
#switchport access ---------------------> PC2: 10.89.101.11/24
