Routing with Layer 3 Alcatel Omniswitch 6850-48 help needed...
We have a small network of MACs which are running independantly of the main LAN. Currently, they connect to a windows server which serves as the router onto the LAN to give internet access. The media department have decided to "upgrade" to a MAC mini server which will manage the MACs completely.
Fine by me - we can take out the windows box. The mac mini only has one nic though, but we found the switch in the media cabinet is an all singing and dancing Alcatel OS6850-48 (total overkill!). Only problem is we don't know how to configure it to route to the main LAN. Anyone have any experience with this or similar? I know the Alcatel CLI is quite different from Cisco, but the concepts remain... I've downloaded the 3600 page CLI reference, but am still struggling as this is my first attempt with L3 routing.
The switch uplinks on a fibre GBIC, all devices are patched directly and the switch was running in its default configuration. Any help gratefully recieved.
