I have a network situation Im hoping someone might be able to help with.
We have a leased line provided to us via fibre but the router we must use (its a managed service line) only has copper interfeaces.
We have a Juniper EX2200 switch that we are looking to use in this office, so iwas wondering if we could do the following, or if anyone else has any other ideas.
1) Leased Line presented via fibre will connect to one of the SFP ports on the above switch.
2) I create a VLAN (VLAN 100 Internet) that includes a the relevant fibre port on the switch as well as including a normal RJ45 copper port in this vlan.
3) I create another VLAN (VLAN 101 LAN) that includes the remaining copper ports on the switch.
4) Fibre is plugged into SFP port on VLAN 100, and then patch lead on copper port on VLAN 100 on the switch is plugged into the WAN interface of the router
5) LAN port of router is plugged into an copper port on VLAN 101 on the switch.
6) Subsequent LAN devices are plugged into the remaining copper ports on VLAN 101
Would this work, or is there an alternative method thats better practice. Any config examples would be greatly appreciated.
