I finally took time to map my entire shitty network to understand exactly what the guy before me did, and i must admit i'm a little bit surprised even if i'm not a network expert...
Just take a look at That Diagram i made so you can have a better idea of the situation.
I'm planning to reconfigure my network like that.
Do i need to "inform" my router/firewall of the existence of the vlans or is it possible to configure vlans on switches so it totally transparent for my router ? Acting like basic interfaces connected to different physical switches.
Subsidiary questions are :
- Is this network design ok in regards of best practices and SOP?
- My VOIP server needs to be accessed trought internet without vpn(for mobile devices), i know it's unsafe, but how could i improve the security without losing this functionnality ?
- Will linking 2 switches with more than 1 wire boost the available bandwith between them ?
I know my questions are dumb, but i'm totally clueless when it comes to theory...
Thank you in advance.
