I am working on setting up VLANS on a basically default switch configuration for my SMB network. They have 5 juniper ex2200 switches that are all on the same subnet and have only a default vlan. I want to do switch stacking via junos Virtual Chassis as well as VLANS.
As of now, only one switch is physically connected to my netgate/pfsense firewall gateway appliance also residing on the same subnet which acts as the DHCP server and default gateway for all nodes in our LAN ( 254 ip addresses all in 10.235.17.***/24).
The remaining switches are all consolidated into ports in the main switch and radiate out from this central point.
What I am unsure about is with the switch stacking I plan on doing should I configure vlans in my netgate at layer 3, or implement it on my switches at layer 2?
