I need to know what is the best solution for a connection that is needed from one side of the building to the another.
I don't have patching access to connect a new server to a firewall interface of an ASA firewall (vendor).
The server has to be in the room where it is now and one NIC has to be connected to an ASA firewall in the other side of the building. So we have a physical challenge.
I am tempted to just run the cable.
Create a VLAN in the switches that connect both sides. There are two Cisco 3560 switches that connect both rooms.
If I create a VLAN what criteria should I keep in mind to keep it secure. The connection is for WAN not LAN.
Will this be the config for that port in the switch:
description WAN connectionto vendor network
switchport access vlan 88
Is it necessary to use the switchport command for what I want to do?
