Hi Guys,

I'd like to know if the following is possible on a managed network switch,

We installed a fibre transceiver on a HP 1910 24G network switch, and want to dedicate only 3 of the ports on the switch to have access to the fibre connection.

For the other 21 ports, the fibre connection should NOT be accessible or visible.

The other 21 ports should however still be able to function as a normal network switch ports (between themselves).

the HP 1910 24G appears to be a layer 3 switch, therefore it should be vlan aware. Configuring the fibre port and the other 3 ports in a separate vlan from the remaining 21 ports should provide this functionality.

The specifics are a bit vague... But create a VLAN and make the fiber port and the other three ports members of that VLAN.  The other 21 ports would be members of a different VLAN.
