Hi, Sudhi,

the easiest way is to use a router or an internal routing engine on your switch and route between your vlans.

Another thing might be to use PVlans. An explanation and configuration will u find in the following links.

Hope this is of any help.

You might also consider using a trunk connection to your server. That way you don’t have to buy a router. Please bear in mind that the server nic has to support ISL or IEEE 802.1q.

Interface fastethernet 0/1

Switchport trunk encapsulation (isl or iee 802.1q)

Switchport mode trunk

The quick and dirty answer to this is to throw multiple NICs in the server and connect each NIC to each VLAN - it doesn't scale hugely well, but is very easy to implement.

A more elegant (but this depends on you comfort level with configuring switches) is to make a trunk port to the server and run 802.1q - keep in mind that this requires capable nics and all traffic to the server will be on one cable, so it is possible that you could see performance issues...
