vlan config
One network cable, four switches, two vlans.

I am using TP-Link managed switches.  The VLAN configuration options include Port-based vlan and 802.1Q vlan plus PVID.

Switch0 (5 port) will be connected to two separate LANs and "uplink" to switch 1.  connections: LAN1, LAN2, Uplink to next switch. I don't care which ports are used for what.

Switches 1, 2, and 3 need LAN2 access on ports 1-4 (no variance possible here) and LAN1 on 5 and 6. 8 is the uplink from the previous switch and 7 is the uplink to the next switch

vlan1 is the office LAN which should be accessible on at least one port on switch 0 and ports 5 and 6 of switches 1, 2, and 3
vlan2 is the security LAN which should be accessible on ports 1-4 of switches 1, 2, and 3

To add on to Cristian's comment, you also need to make sure to have the ports set for the correct VLANs on each switch (obviously, but wanted to put out the reminder).
