I was wondering if someone could help me with the specifics of how to set up a VLAN for the network using Schoolguardian. I do not have formal network training and so I feel very inadequate to tackle this project, but it just needs to be done and so any help would be very appreciated…Current Network: 1. I currently have a 10.0.0.0 network 255.0.0.0 with a proxy for filtering at 10.0.0.1:xxx where 10.0.0.1 is the Gateway. 2. I also use the DHCP server which points to my primary DNS at 10.0.0.2 and Secondary at 10.0.0.4. 3. I use the DHCP server to hand out static IPs created per MAC addresses of each client. And this, in turn, is used by Guardian Authentication to Identify by IP and filter by groups. So now I wish to set up a VLAN that will have use of all these assets including – DHCP server/ group filtering, internet access, and proxy. But not sure of all the hoops I need to jump through to get there. Here is what I’m thinking: Set up VLAN; Set up New DHCP Subnet for VLAN ; …Question here – How will I point to access DNS? Set up Routing Rule .Set up Zone bridging…. Question – do I need both Routing rule and Zone bridging? I’m I thinking correctly? How do I proxy and DNS? What am I missing? Again, any help would be wonderful.
