    VLAN configuration information

    Has anyone got any good free resources on VLANs, i'd like to look into VLANs for camera traffic amongst other things. I've implemented a VLAN on a single switch to seperate a few devices in testing but never on a few switches.
    Can someone give me a quick break down on how it works when you have multiple switches. Would you just tell one switch that a certain port is in e.g. VLAN 1 and then connect that to another port on a different switch and tell it that the incoming port is also on VLAN 1?

    I should be using HP switches by the time I get around to this.

    One learning curve coming up.

    Thanks.

    If you are using all one brand of switch then what you want to do is have the links between the switches configured as trunk links. This will let you configure them to take the traffic of more than one vlan at a time. The other switches when configured like this will interpret the avalible vlans and let you allocate them out to ports as you would if you were on a single switch.
