    Setting Up a WAN

    Here is what our network looks like now:

    School A - A core switch (10.1.2.51 - Procurve 5412zl) which does all the routing
    Sonicwall - 1
    0.1.2.50 where the internet comes from (into X1)
    Two subnets - 10.1.2.xxx (512 IPs) = wired LAN - VLAN1
    10.2.1.xxx (512 IPs) = wireless LAN - VLAN30
    Filter - 10.1.2.18 (filters all traffic, pretty much only adult content)
    Other misc. servers, etc.

    School B - A core switch (10.5.0.11 - Procurve 5304xl) which does all the routing
    Sonicwall - 10.5.0.10 where the internet comes from (into X5 for some reason)
    Two subnets - 10.5.0.xxx (512 IPs) = wired LAN - VLAN50
    10.6.0.xxx (512 IPs) = wireless LAN - VLAN60
    Other misc. servers, etc.

    Now, we are going to have a Fiber WAN setup between these two schools. School A will be the Hub and School B will be the spoke. Our ISP says it should be setup like a PTP between the two.

    Some questions:

    I'm going to come out of School A right into the current School B core switch bypassing the current School B firewall completely, right? Because the Firewall at School A will takeover all of that.

    What do I need to add to the School B core switch so that any non-School B packets (like the internet) will be passed back to School A (which the WAN will come from)?

    The ISP engineer also said that I needed to make sure that what was coming from School B into the School A core switch port - I had to make sure THAT port included all the subnets (something about a "on a stick")?

    Thanks!

    Router on a stick.

    I assume hopefully that the fibre is just an end to end network link.

    What you need to do on Core B , is set it's default route to be CORE A.

    On core A you also need to put in static routes for each of the CORE B networks and have it's next hop as Core B.


    in ours we have a 192.168.1.x network for Core A and Core B.

    (A) being 192.168.1.1
    Linked by the fibre to
    (B) being 192.168.1.2


    So the default route on core (B) would go to 192.168.1.1

    and in your case,

    on the core A you would add static routes

    Pointing at all your Core(B) networks with the next hop as 192.168.1.2

    Okay, where would I add the routes (on an HP procurve). Would it be a config command? Here is the shwo config from Site B:


    hostname "ProCurve Switch 5304XL"
    snmp-server location "WS Main Closet"
    time timezone 420
    module 3 type J4821A
    module 2 type J4820A
    module 4 type J4907A
    ip default-gateway 10.5.0.10
    sntp server 192.43.244.18
    ip routing
    timesync sntp
    sntp unicast
    snmp-server community "public" Unrestricted
    vlan 1
    name "DEFAULT_VLAN"
    ip address dhcp-bootp
    no untagged B1-B24,C1-C4,D1-D16
    exit
    vlan 50
    name "WS LAN"
    untagged B1-B24,D1-D14
    ip address 10.5.0.11 255.255.254.0
    tagged C1-C4,D15-D16
    exit
    vlan 60
    name "WS WLAN"
    untagged C1-C4
    ip address 10.6.0.1 255.255.254.0
    ip helper-address 10.5.0.3
    tagged D15-D16
    exit
    ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.5.0.10
    primary-vlan 50

    So, I would change the ip route part?
