If you have a network architecture that doesn’t support native vlan, you’ll need to configure your network to support it. This is an important step because you’ll want to create a virtual network in case that you need to use vlan on your network later.
Vlan is a way to group users together on a network. For instance, if you have a network that has one main group of computers called “the admin” and another set of computers called “the user.” If you have vlan defined, youll need to create a “group” that contains all of the computers in that vlan.
The steps are fairly easy to follow and you can even find a helpful How-To on the internet, but you have to know what you are doing.
That’s what I was worried about. I didn’t know what configuring a vlan is, and as I said, I feel like I could spend a week playing this game but that would be really boring. I need to add this to the list.
Configuring a vlan is a critical step in setting up your new network. When someone joins your vlan, they give their IP address to the computers in that vlan.
Now when someone joins your vlan, they have to be aware of the rules of your vlan. If they don’t know they need to give their IP address to the computer in that vlan, they will not be able to connect to your network.
There are three things that are different when you have a vlan. You have the default interface, the one that connects to the internet. You have to choose which interface you want to use, the one that will be used for your home network. And finally, when you join your vlan, you have to give the computer in that vlan an IP address.
The main reason that the default interface is the one that connects to your network, the one that connects to the internet, is because most people who aren’t on internet tend to be on the default interface, which is the one that connects to your network. The network has a few things that a vlan should have to do to it.
First, it should have a default gateway, which is the IP address that the computer in the vlan should be using.
VLANs are a great way to isolate computers in networked environments. Because the default interface, that connects to your network, is the one that connects to the internet, you can use it as a way to isolate computers that don’t have internet connectivity.
