Hello. First post here. I am new (again) to Cisco products. In a former life I had a bunch of Catalyst 10/100 switches but it has been many years. In the meantime I have gotten out of the "hands on" management and was overseeing exclusively Dell PowerConnect switches (among other hardware).
Recently I purchased a couple SG300-10 switches. I should have bought two SG300-20's in hindsight but be that as it may, it is what it is. Had I purchased the SG300-20's I would have had enough ports but since I only bought the 10's, I need extra ports so I pulled a few old Dell PowerConnect 2716's out of the graveyard until we can afford to upgrade. It is making me feel very lost going from a Dell environment over to a Cisco environment as well as having to combine them both in the same infrastructure --while at the same time knowing that the SG300 is nothing more than a re-branded Linksys... and both the 2716 and the SG300-10 happen to have Anatel stickers on their undersides.
What are the different VLAN types? (General, Access and Trunk) Quite simply I am trying to trunk eight (8) VLANs from firewall through SG300-10 to Dell PC2716 and then on to end user devices.
I am able to set up "General" VLANs directly going to end-user devices on the SG300-10 and I was able to trunk on the Dell infrastructure but for some reason I am missing something with this setup. The SG300-10 is configured to L3. I am confused (I think) about the PVID settings and were I can enter a range of VLANs to be trunked. If I want to trunk VLANs 1000-1999 to a second switch, how should I configure the SG300-10?
