The Dell switch is an enterprise product with many more features than the D-Link one, such as routing, PoE, and stacking with a high-capacity backbone between stacked switches. When you say you want a switch that does IPv6, do you mean that you need to be able to access its own control interface using IPv6 (in which case the D-Link doesn't do what you need), ...

I think you would do well to think about why you might use VLANs to begin with. It sounds like you have reasons to limit / segment traffic, but I would question if you're really going to do the homework necessary to build ACLs to have fine-grained control of traffic between PCs, servers, and printers. In every case that I've seen that done the admin ends up ...

You don't "need" a VLAN just for the printers, but since you are planning your network now and creating the VLANs I would make one. The printer server usually doesn't need to be on the same VLAN as the printers since it doesn't need to speak with them using layer 2 but connects using TCP/IP. So you can keep it in the servers VLAN. edit: oh, I was missing ...

The feature log command should display the true number of licensed ports- if that also agrees that it's 20 and these ports are still offline, then I'd open a ...

Yes, it will help in two ways: If there is a lot of communication between the various networks (switches) this will mean less traffic will have go through the router, eliminating a bottleneck If the switches have gigabit ports the throughput will be increased tenfold. This will, however, create an additional single point of failure on your network. If ...

Ok I found this: /usr/local/bin/sshpass -p password ssh admin@1.1.1.1 < ios-cmds.txt where ios-cmds.txt contains all the commands in separate lines as if I was typing them sequentially. Also, one of my colleagues suggested using the linux command: expect EDIT: One thing to be careful with is, that if the SSH session has never taken place, the ...
