Help VLAN newbie! Can I control CTV traffic on one netgear switch?
We have just had a couple of CCTV cams installed on a new netgear switch (fs728tp) and now I'm wondering if it would be better if they were on a VLAN?
The CCTV installers who fitted the whole kit a while back told me that they wouldn't affect our network but I'm not sure that is true.
Leaving aside if they are right or wrong my system is as follows.
One switch with the CCTV server and the CCTV cameras and one connection back to our main switch cab.
I have never had any VLAN experiences before but could I somehow set the cams and the CCTV server up on one, leave the connection going back to the main switch cab off the vlan or is there more to it than that?? :confused:
