Looks like, from what I've read from other site and this one, VLANs configuration is the way to go. Will now look into the configuration of the unit's VLANs, so I end up with a working configuration that supports my needs in the way of this task. If anyone has input for their config, that would be helpful, I'm still a newbie at this but willing to learn as much as I can.
The default gateway's of the two networks would be used to route to the printer and back from the printer.
- If the NV1531P is set up to route using VLAN interfaces between the networks and to act as the network default-route or default-gateway to these two networks, it will route everything between networks.
- Therefore the best configuration would be done on the network gateway / router to allow the specific traffic between VLAN's.
- This would not be best if it was required to run at line speeds since the router is normally slower than a switch.
Hope this provides the network design information you were requesting.
