Multiple VLAN on 1 Cisco Switch

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Jeff Mac Pherson, Sep 24, 2004.

  1. I'm able to create multiple VLAN on 1 cisco 4506 switch. ie

    vlan1 - default - 192.168.1.0
    vlan2 - vlan2 - 192.168.2.0
    vlan3 - vlan3 - 192.168.3.0

    I can't seem to access the other subnets, I have a field manual right
    now and it doesn't explain much. Besides configuring vlans, I guess I
    need to enable trunk or routing ?

    You need to route between VLANs.

    A VLAN is way of segmenting a layer 2 broadcast domain. Once you've
    segmented it how are they going to communicate except via layer 3?
    A bit mystified as to why you are creating vlan's without an understanding
    of what they are...
