I am a newbie:
I have four boxes A1,A2,A3,A4 that need to communicate with 4 other boxes
B1,B2,B3,B4 with these "permutations":
A1 needs to communicate with B1,B2,B3,B4
A2 needs to communicate with B1,B2,B3,B4
A3 needs to communicate with B1,B2,B3,B4
A4 needs to communicate with B1,B2,B3,B4
For technical reasons A1,A2,A3,A4 have the same IP addresses (and this
cannot be changed). B1,B2,B3,B4 all have different IP addresses.
Is it possible to define VLANs:
so that the traffic is properly segregated and A1,A2,A3,A4 having the same
IP address is not a problem ?
Note: One acceptable limitation would be that the switch "translates" the IP
addresses of A1, A2, A3, A4 to fixed+reproducable+known new unique IP
addresses during send/receive operations respectively (for B1,B2,B3,B4 I can
specify the source and destination IP addresses for both directions
send/receive as they decode the ethernet frames on a low protocol level,
they don't run the "default" TCP/IP stack).
Additionally, I need to be able to define an alternative configuration:
If all of the above is possible, can someone point me to a (managed) switch
that for once allows such VLAN configuration based on ports, in addition
allows to fix the port speed for each port (another restriction that I
have), allows to save and restore different configurations (see the 2
alternatives) and additionally has a HTTP based web interface for
Thanks for any help,
