Spanning-tree on Linksys srw2008  

Posted at 5:40 pm in Uncategorized

After finally admitting defeat I had to boot into Windows for managing my Linksys SRW2008 switch through its WebView, the reason being I could not find out how to enable regular spanning-tree on the switch.

Having enabled it through its IE-specific web UI, I logged in to the (rather poorly documented) CLI afterwards to check what had changed in the config. And the single, magic configuration line that enabled spanning-tree on the switch was this one:

VLAN woes  

Posted at 5:30 pm in Uncategorized

I’ve been planning to do this for a long time and now I’m finally there. My home network now consists of two virtual host servers (one Xen and one KVM) and a firewall between them, all nodes understanding VLANs. On top of this, add a small but powerful Linksys switch and a Linksys wireless access point running OpenWRT Kamikaze 8.09 (RC1). Among other things, this setup should facilitate testing Munin and other stuff without breaking the current functionality too much.

I got great help from this article on tweaking VLANs on the Xen host, and this article on VLANs with kvm. Thanks!
