I need to bridge another network within our hw, probably with VLAN, even though I have read the tutorials, wiki etc it is not very clear for me, all examples are about one router creating more VLANs.
Our network - CCR router in main rack with CRS317 and some CRS326s, fiber uplinks to other racks with CRS326s and there are even some 3com / TP-link core switches from other company.
CCR (sfpp1 internet gateway, eth2 - local network 192.168.0.1/24)
running firewall, dhcp etc
CRS317 - rack1
CRS326 - rack 2
In the main rack, there are also switches with the building's network (10.1.1.0-24) - we are not connected to it in any way.
Now, we need to add some access terminals to our rooms, but connected to the building's network (separate from our network). So I need to use our fiber cables, network equipment etc to work like another cable - the best way would be to connect the building's network to some free port on the CCR (eth3), tag in (with VLAN?) and on the CRS326 in rack 2, select some port assigned to that VLAN (eth24 for example).
The result I need is that a device connected to eth24 in CRS326 (in rack2) will be on the building's network, get their ip 10.1.1.0/24 from their dhcp etc and will be separated from our network - just like bridge, but over more devices.
I remember VLANs have worked somehow this way, but I don't work with them much and since there are people on our network, I don't want to mess with it much.
so, Is it possible with VLAN, is this the correct way to do this, or is there any better?
Will it work if there are 3com / tp-link switches on the way, or does it depend on them somehow (VLAN support for example)?
thank you very much
