I have a Netvanta 3305 router with a Dell PowerConnect switch connected to it. We are replacing bridged T1's coming into the router with a fiber WAN connection coming into the Dell switch. The other network uses different IP's. Using the AOS guide for Inter-Lan routing I converted the connection between router and swtich to a VLAN trunk with subinterfaces lets say IP 192.168.1.0 tied to VLAN 1 and IP 192.168.2.1 tied to VLAN 200. Then I created the firewall rules and moved them above my NAT rule per the guide.
On the Dell switch I have default VLAN 1 and then VLAN 200 I created. The port going to the fiber connection is configured for VLAN 200 with tagging on. The port that connects to the trunk I created on the router is set to VLAN 1 untagged ( cannot set VLAN 1 to tagged on dell switches apparently) and also to VLAN 200 tagged so the switch knows both VLAN's can communicate over that port.
At the other end of the fiber connection I have a NetVanta 1224STR. All equipment at this end will be part of the "200" VLAN.
I can communicate just fine with any equipment on VLAN 1 and Internet, as well as ping the 2 subinterfaces created on the trunk, however I cannot ping the 1224STR with IP 192.168.2.254 that is at the other end of the WAN link or any other equipment over the WAN.
Do I need to actually configure any VLAN info on the 1224STR? They all will be part of VLAN 200 which is specified on the Dell switch so I wouldn't think I would have to program the 1224 to say all ports are VLAN 200.
I disconnected the old T1's and the Internet from the 3305 prior to testing to make sure i was testing just the fiber WAN. I'm kind of at a loss since it seems no traffic can make it through the fiber WAN.
I'm wondering if any of it has to do with using VLAN ID 1 on the switch and router. Perhaps I should change all ports except for 1 (designated as management on VLAN 1) to VLAN 100 and then the port going to the fiber WAN connection as the VLAN 200 and change the trunk to allow VLAN 100 and 200.
