My apologies as I am new to CISCO networking in general.
I have the following scenario.
A non cisco router which has to be used that provides 3 VLANS (10.81.0.*, 10.82.0.* and 10.83.0.*) accessible via a single Ethernet port for each VLAN
1 Catalyst 2960 24 Port POE Switch (switch 1)
1 Catalyst 2960-S 24 port POE Switch (switch 2)
What I want to be able to to do is to assign certain port ranges for each switch to different VLANS from the router.
Switch 1 ports 1- 15 can access external router VLAN1
Switch 1 ports 16 - 24 and switch 2 ports 1-10 can access external router VLAN2
Switch 2 ports 11-24 can access external router VLAN3
My questions are:
1. is this possible with my current hardware? Can i simply configure VLANS on the switches and use one port in each of the VLAN ranges for the uplink to the router?
2. For VLAN 2 in the above example, what is the best way to configure a VLAN that spans ports on 2 switches?
3. If I want a certain device connected to a specific port on VLAN1 to be accessible to all other VLANS, how can I enable this?
Please be kind in your responses as I am new to this.
