I currently have a 192.168.0.0/24, class c network configuration. I'm closing in on having about 15 valid IP addresses, obviously it's a little past time to do something about this, but still not to late. I weighed just changing the subnet to bump this up to 512 versus setting up VLANs, and everything I looked at said VLANS are the way to go.
I'm running Win Server 08 and have configured the following within DHCP:
192.168.0.0 - Servers / Routers / AP's
192.168.20.0 - Workstations
192.168.30.0 - Zero Clients
192.168.40.0 - Mobile BYOD Devices
192.168.50.0 - Printers / Cameras
From my understanding, I keep each subnet at a /24 (I think I can go /24, /28, if desired to limit devices, but not sure I'd want to do that, plus I like similarity). As I understand it, everythings fine on that front.
My ProCurve switches are setup with the specific VLAN info, I have the appropriate VLAN ID's configured on every switch required.
I have nearly every port accounted for; meaning that I know what VLAN ID's are required per port, and the appropriate trunked groups for those requiring that.
My uncertainty comes in here; do I need to do anything to make Windows Server 08 transfer data between VLANs? For instance, my Server VLAN obviously needs to communicate with everything other VLAN, I realize the trunked ports will allow the various VLANs to pass through, but is that it? Do I need anything on the server side to pass data in between these vlans?
I know it's kind of a loaded question, and a bit confusing, but I'm trying to ensure I'm on the right path. Thanks for any insight at all.
