I am having trouble making the HP V1910 Switch split into two distinct switches. My goal is to have most of the switch be on the internal network, and a few ports at the end be in a DMZ zone.
I am new to VLANs so any help would be appreciated.
Here is my setup so far:
VLAN 0002 DMZ
My assumption is that there should be an uplink/internet cable per block of ports. Under this assumption I have one of the ports on the left with a cable directly to my SonicWall Firewall, on the DMZ block I have a cable going into a DMZ port on the SonicWall Firewall. I would think that this would keep the two separated, but it may be the case that I need a cable directly from the Comcast Modem/Router into the second block. Or, lastly, it could be that I should only be using one uplink cable at all. I honestly don't know. When reading other posts, no one seems to mention this part specifically but for someone such as myself I need these little details.
Continuing with the Switch, I also created a second VLAN Interface. It uses DHCP and has generated an IP address, and only does so when I plug in that DMZ cable from the SonicWall. If that cable isn't plugged in it doesn't appear to generate one, which makes me think this is a step in the right direction. Unfortunately I cannot access the internet through any of the DMZ ports on the switch.
I want to clarify that I'm only trying to split a single switch, not connect multiple switches together, in case that wasn't clear.
