Want a simple VLAN on a single switch...but I'm confused
Got a Procurve 2610-48 here. It will be connected to the core switch. I want 36 ports to be part of the main network, so nothing needs to be done to them.
But I want 2 groups of 6 ports to be VLAN'd, so we can run a cable from the curriculum and admin sides of our router. Essentially each of those groups are replacing a standalone 8 port switch, I dont want any traffic going between the VLANs at all.
But there are so many options, and I've never really setup a VLAN before.
My attempt - I created 2 additional static VLANs in addition to the default, and tagged 6 ports in each. I then forbid all the ports that wernt part of that VLAN. I realise this is probably totally the wrong way to do it!
As I expected, this doesnt work. The default is still fine, and cannot see any device on the 2 other VLAN's, but if I plug 2 devices into the first VLAN of 6 ports, they cannot communicate. So something is not right....what do I need to set?
