Unicast Routing Configuration Example

The stations connected to the system generate a combination of IP traffic and NetBIOS traffic. The IP traffic is filtered by the protocol-sensitive VLANs. All other traffic is directed to the VLAN MyCompany.

In this configuration, all IP traffic from stations connected to slots 1 and 3 have access to the router by way of the VLAN Finance. Ports on slots 2 and 4 reach the router by way of the VLAN Personnel. All other traffic (NetBIOS) is part of the VLAN MyCompany.

The example in the above figure is configured as follows:

create vlan Finance tag 10
create vlan Personnel tag 11
create vlan MyCompany

configure Finance protocol ip
configure Personnel protocol ip

configure Finance add port 1:*,3:* tag
configure Personnel add port 2:*,4:* tag
configure MyCompany add port all

configure Finance ipaddress
configure Personnel ipaddress
configure rip add vlan Finance
configure rip add vlan Personnel

enable ipforwarding
enable rip
