Hello,I'm new to VLAN and I apologize for ignorance. If company A creates a VLAN on their switch and I plug my firewall/vpn device into the configured port, do i need to set up a firewall? I just want company B to use company A for internet access allowing my vpn to connect company B to a remote site.
company A is allowing us to use their internet connection and thus creating a vlan for us to connect too.
my company, company B will hook up a firewall/vpn device to their switch. Will we be secure or do I need to set up the firewall on my device so the vlan is secure?

The vLAN ACL should be in the switch that Company A owns/manages. You can set additional settings on your firewall/VPN to make sure that only VPN tunnels can be made and no other network access is coming from Company A or the inernet.

That is awesome news!! I didn't think of the ACL's in the switch. Thank you so much. That makes perfect sense to me now. :bounce:

so just applying an ACL rule I can set up my VLAN and get internet while at the same time blocking everything else. It's just as if I was setting TCP Wrappers on a linux box.


THANKS, KEWLX25
