Re: VLAN Configuration

I know what a VLAN is and what it's function is. In my book by adding extra VLANs is actually complicating things. You would need a separate switch for each VLAN just like I had to do for my FHC that run through the same firewall. You would have to know which switch goes to switch subnet and then i...

Re: VLAN Configuration

I hear your concerns and wonder why so much concerns on security of what is basically a home network. Even if you put a VLAN on the router it stills knows about all the VLANs on it. It knows how to route between them. The one thing it wouldn't allow is a broadcast to the other VLANS. Even manage sw...

Re: VLAN Configuration

The admin computers are not exposed to the internet. To everyone on the WiFi in the same meetinghouse, yes. But that's not quite the same. What about open and active network ports in the newer buildings? Or someone planting a device? A cellular device has access to the Internet. There are multiple ...

Re: VLAN Configuration

I'm not really concerned about network security, although our use of a Pre-Shared Key for the Wi-Fi is a clear and present danger. Look up layer 2 attacks and you will see there are a variety of attacks that are easy to use. I don't know, but I wonder if Sophos Firewall is much superior to Windows ...

Re: VLAN Configuration

Because clerks can use either cell phone cameras or the multi-function printer in the library to scan receipts? Yes, however if you have ever seen elderly clerks fumble with cellular devices, you would question why that is an acceptable answer. I'm sure if President Nelson were to try doing it, he ...

Re: VLAN Configuration

Right, but meeting houses are transmitting sensitive information back and forth between Salt Lake. Are they expecting security through obscurity to work? For the most part it does, but you need something at least at Stake Centers. I mean, the entirety of the building network is built on an unmanaged...

VLAN Configuration

Right now the Meraki Router/Firewall and Access Points are all controlled by church headquarters. However there is no documentation or instruction about configuring the devices for security purposes such as adding separate VLANs, DHCP guard, layer 2 filtering, etc. Right now I have big security conc...
