Hi all. I'm so glad we can share our knowledge and experiences in this intimate atmosphere. Here's my problem. Due to my responsibility, I'll have to connect two segments of 5 and 6 nodes(PCs exactly). Now I want to know what would be the most cost-effective policy to link these two segments using a switch(any recommendations?) considering the fact that there'd be no intrusions with respect to my enterprise policies!
Thanks in advance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are these two networks at the same physical location? Can you just plug all nodes into the same switch? If security is of concern you can separate them with a firewall. A separate VLAN might work as well. More info on what you’re trying accomplish would be helpful.

    Well yes, as I previously told you these two segments are just a partition(3meters of corridor) away. Unfortunately, I have no idea about the type of switch and switching coding I might need!By the way, how can configure and set the firewall?

    This is beginning to sound more like a homework question than anything else.  If you have the basic certifications, A+, Network+, you should be able to answer some of these questions yourself.  Also, reading a book on Firewalls, like Firewalls for Dummies, will give you the basics' of what and how to set one up and what you will need.  Really simple process.
