1 switch per VLAN is needless overcomplication. Configure trunk port(s) on your TOR/access switch. Then create 1 vSwitch on your host. Connect the vSwitch NIC(s) to the trunk ports. When you create a VM, edit the vNIC settings and set the VLAN tag/ID/number. This is both the simplest way to do it, and best practice. The vSwitch, as long as you use MSFT ...

One aspect of security with VLANs that Verizon may be (but I doubt it) thinking of, is that they allow/cause you to separate your network into logical (virtual) segments. If you have hosts on VLAN 29 and other hosts on VLAN 45, then those networks cannot talk to each other without being routed, so the traffic will be localized to that particular VLAN. This ...

Your question isn't clear, but I think what you're asking is this: PC A --------- Switch 1 ------- Switch 2 --------- PC B ^ access ^ trunk ^ access VLAN 10 VLAN 20 Assuming that none of the switches are performing any type of routing, then PC A and PC B will never be able to talk to each other. ...

So to clarify you are asking what would happen if PC A sent a frame to PC B's MAC address. The packet would reach switch 1. Exactly what happens here depends on if the switch uses per-vlan MAC tables. If it uses per-vlan MAC tables then the mac lookup would fail and the packet would be flooded out all ports on the VLAN (except the one it came from). If it ...

1) There's no commercial-grade APs made by Linksys. Linksys is a home/consumer vendor. Rest of it's small business device lines was sucked up by the Cisco prior to the Cisco/Belkin deal of aquiring Linksys. 2) The common approach is to split wireless network in VLANs, one vlan for each SSID. Since enterprise-grade AP is usually simply a bridge, it cannot ...

The SG200-50 is a layer 2 switch only. So while it supports grouping of ports to VLANs it cannot route traffic between them without an external router or L3 switch. You will not be able to assign the printer to two VLAN simultaneously.

With a VPN. You have tons of options to choose from.

With a VPN. Usually in advanced routers you can setup one, this means both routers in both ends must support it. If both ends have a computer you might leave them switched on, use it as a server and setup Openvpn there. the router then will just NAT the openvpn port to the server and from the server you will have your LAN plugged to your SWITCH who will ...

1) On 1st PC setup OpenVPN(or any other VNP server) server. 2) On the router connected to the 1st computer, setup port forward or DMZ 3) On 2nd PC setup connection to 1st PC

A VLAN will allow you to use a single physical Ethernet link between two locations to carry traffic of multiple logically separate Ethernet segments. For example suppose at location A you have hosts A1 and A2 and at location B you have hosts B1 and B2. You have a single Ethernet cable between the two locations through which A1 will need to communicate with ...

While I highly urge anyone to use Aidan's answer if at all possible. The final solution I found allowed me to preserve the original design of the server and still make it all work. Going off the aritcle provided here https://community.mellanox.com/docs/DOC-1845 it became apparent that I was able to add interfaces to my team. I added a team interface for ...
