Using HP1910 24G switch advanced features

Hello,

I have recently bought an HP1910 24G switch..

I need to use it for the following scenario:

- port 2 is connected to our ISP, the ISP gave me a single IP address with access to internet (178.x.x.35/29) that if we set on any device and set its gateway to some other IP (178.x.x.33/29) it will have access to the internet. The ISP also provided the DNS settings with the gateway configuration.

- ports 3-24 will be connected to small devices that will do lots of traffic. The devices should have a range of IPs from (10.0.0.0/24) subnet and have access to the internet through the port connected to the ISP.

- port 1 will be left as the management port with the default IP 169.254.178.39 and it does not need connection to the internet or to be accessed by other 2 networks..

Is such setup possible using HP1910 considering it does have some basic level of routing? (static routes). Or is a router a must in this case?

Can such a setup be done using HP1910 CLI? (if yes please show how can it be done using CLI and how can it be done using web interface).

Thanks!

You could use the HP1910 as a router.  What you need to do is create VLANs for your Management and regular LAN segments.  Ensure to enter IP address for each VLAN and then you could create your routes.  You could refer to a link on VMFOCUS with more information as they have lots of information on this (I refer to this for site for virtualization help using HP products) or you could refer to the manual provided by HP.

No.  The 1910 can't do NAT. While it does have some routing capabilities, it is rather limited (static routing only and then only 32 routes total).

So you will need a router (or switch) capable of NAT.
