I'm trying to create a home lab Windows 2012 network using virtual machines in VMware.
In order to create a network environment where the Server 2012 acts as DHCP and DNS server (without conflicting with my home router), I purchased a cheap smart switch that allows for VLAN. This switch allows me to create:
1. Port Based VLAN
2. 802.1Q VLAN
Which should I choose? 802.1Q appears to be more involved and difficult, but I don't mind wrestling with it if it's a better solution for the real world.
Thanks in advance.
