LAN > WAN link trouble.
Posted on 2014-02-17
I'm currently trying to figure out how to resolve a problem.
We want to be able to replicate the Germany setup i.e. Thin Client and printer here in the UK.
We have a route on our internal Firewall (Cisco ASA 5510) which allows a connection to the Germany Terminal server (192.168.0.4) which allows us to connection OK to the Germany network.
However we need to replicate printing but the only way to get output from the printer is if we plug the printer directly into the WAN switch in the server room.
Ideally we want to plug the printer into the internal LAN and it routes through the the Germany WAN.
I thought maybe a VLAN connection may do the trick.
But I ran into a problem where it caused 'Excessive Broadcasts' on the Internal LAN switch (10.0.11.26) which caused some issues with Thin Client and phone connections on the LAN. Opps!
I tried to create a VLAN for this setup through specific ports.
I'm thinking it's because of the fibre link between the Server room/Comms room switch and office cab switch and link between this switch and the WAN switch (10.0.11.12) caused problems.
How can I route traffic from the WAN switch onto our internal LAN upto the cab switch where the printer and thin client will be plugged in.
Below is the basic outline of the current setup:
WAN switch (10.0.11.12) connected to >
WAN Cisco ASA (192.168.0.1)
Internal LAN switch (10.0.11.2) 10GB fibre connection to >
Office Cab where Thin client and printer are/need to be connected:
Internal LAN switch (10.0.11.26) linked via 10GB fibre connection from server/Comms room.
