Even though we tend to use the same goofy kitten face as an avatar, we are not the same person and have no affiliation. Other than good taste in avatars, anyway.

And as for Netgear stuff, I may be a snob about this, but perhaps a more "enterprise" brand would be to your benefit. Cisco, Juniper, ProCurve... something with granular controls - which usually means a solid, proven CLI. Then again, I'm judging based on little experience with Netgear. BTW, default deny is also known as an inclusive policy since you must explicitly "include" the traffic that is accepted. The opposite is called an exclusive policy since everything is accepted by default and you must explicitly "exclude" traffic. The latter is typically a Bad Thing.

@osij2is I don't use much in the way of either subnets or VLANs since I'm mostly a small office contractor. I would prefer to use VLANs since that's just what I've mostly used in the past. However, I'm willing to be accused of hammer-syndrome. When all you have is dot-one-q, everything looks like a VLAN problem. Yes, one layer of abstraction is good. Always. Two layers is a rabbit hole. Three layers is a sign of LSD abuse.

Words. Upvote. Oh wait, this isn't Reddit. Anyway, "Resist the temptation to be overly clever." Quoted for truth!

Indeed. I fail at correctly ordering the OSI model. A thousand lashes with a cord of thinnet for me.

@womble Very good point. I knew there was a reason I picked oddball ranges for my home network. I also knew there was a reason I still have my mom's network on token ring. I never trusted that TCP/IP thing.

@!i.am.intern The OpenSource version. The Enterprise version would, I assume, provide better support. =)

I use it. Works good, but it's often attacked and the forums are terrible for support. The company that makes it treats it as if it doesn't exist. If I recall, updates are unfortunately slow even after security vulnerabilities are found.
