VLANs and local authority
Our local authority has given the school the IP address 10.120.160.0/22 to use so it was just a flat network.
We now have some money, so putting investment into the switches. New core switch HP5406zl, 8 x HP2810ís and the other switches are either HP2650ís, 2626ís and 1 HP1800. 15 in total.
We are also having an ASA5510 firewall.
The local authority provide a CISCO switch for our outside connection so this is our default gateway 10.120.160.1. The local authority also do our web filtering. I can allow extra websites through should I need to with local filtering, but to allow the extra websites through I have to specify an IP address or IP range.
I want to create VLANS. Just 3 at the moment, one for server and switches etc, one for staff and one for students.
I have an understanding of VLAN but a few things are driving me mad.
What would be the best way to go about creating VLANs in terms of the IP addressing for each VALN?
Iím not worried about the commands to do the setting up at the moment. I know I can set multiple scopes on our DHCP server.
Would the ASA or 5406zl do NAT, so what ever we do internally is transparent to the LA?
There must be another school that has done something similar!
Cheers for the help
