Disclaimer: Network rookie, might have wrong assumptions.
Got a basic subnet question that im interested in hearing your thoughts about.
Address Range for servers: 192.168.251.1 - 192.168.251.30
Address range for clients: 192.168.251.40 - 192.168.251.255
My general assumption is that 200+ clients in the same subnet would cause a lot of broadcasts and that some sort of segmentation should be implemented, like VLANs or splitting the clients into smaller subnets.
My questions are:
- Assuming the switches are L3 - what would be the most "efficient" way of doing this?
- Is it advisable to have servers and clients in the same subnet ?
- Should clients and servers be in separate VLANs ? And if so, is L3 switches capable of routing between these?
