Finding a consultant...?

Wed Feb 29, 2012 12:00 am

Hi,
I apologize if there's a sticky I didn't see... but what is the best course of action to try to find a consultant to create a build? I bought a 450G that I want to use as a standard for the networks our company deploys. I was going to work on a build myself, but I do a ton of control system programming, and I'm going to be buried in that for the forseeable future. So, I was hoping to find some sort of recommendation for someone to hire to create a base configuration for these routers for our purposes, so that when we deploy them per job, we're only modifying WAN information, VLAN info and adjusting which ports to actually forward (if any).

We typically do high-end residential or light commercial. We're usually creating at least two VLANs, and using separate access points that support VLAN tagging. We also need to be able to establish a VPN tunnel to the router that is supported by iPhone users for remote connection to some of our systems. Last, we have several ports that we forward directly to our control gear.

Any suggestions or guidance would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks,
Jeff B

I knew that consultant list was there, however, that's almost literally a shot in the dark; it's almost like calling your insurance company and asking to refer a Dr. I had hoped that maybe there would be someone on here either with a positive direct experience with a consultant, or maybe even some consultants here in the forums...

I'm in St. Louis, Missouri, but I would suspect the work would be pretty easy to complete remotely... I can even send out a 450G...
