Virtual switch versus VLANS - solving this mind game

Post by macnetwork » Wed Aug 07, 2019 5:30 pm

Have a look at the picture and try to solve 3 Macbookpro find their way back to the 2 NAS and the Mac mini

I Have a
- TS809 pro
- TVS-882ST,
- I have 2 WAN fiber lines aggregated on the the 2 Ethernet 1Gb/s of the TVS-882ST,
- 3 MacBook Pro.

In this game, will you manage to help each Macbook Pro access the two NAS + the Mac mini with their shared AFP folders from their respective connexion point ?
(it might be harder than it looks like, because you mustn't loop)

1/ the two fibre lines are aggregated on the TVS-882ST as the physical adapter 1+2 on the picture -> LAN comes out as 192.168.20.xxx with DHCP delivered by Orange fiber line Box
2/ the virtual switch n° 4 on the TVS (see picture) allows the MacBook Pro n°2 to access internet via the thunderbolt port
3/ the TS 809 can be set on whatever static IP you wish and same for Mac mini.
4/ the MacbookPro n°2 connects to the Fiber line box (Free) via it's wifi -> Lan 192.168.19.xxx

To help these poor MacbookPro 1,2, and 3 to reach their files, you might consider :
  • Creating a virtual switch that incorporates Physical adapter n° 3 and link it to something ?
  • Incorporate physical adapter n°3 in virtual switch n°4 ?
  • Create a VLAN with an ID to host everybody on the same LAN ?
  • Create a network path ?
  • Set the TS809 pro and Mac mini on a static address and which one ?
Will you manage to find the solution ?

first ... " JUMANJI "

Ok, so this is the answer.. :

-> you need to build a new virtual switch incorporating
  • ( physical 1+2)
  • physical 3
  • thunderbolt.


but NOT edit an already existing virtual switch.. it will mess up. You must build new one in advanced mode with all correct settings. Then magic happens.. :mrgreen:

It seems to be a problem from the forum.

I have to log in and then I can see them. If I don't login to the forum, a message says I don't have the permission to see the attachments weird :| :S

maybe an administrator could explain why the others on the forum cannot see the attachments ?
