I have just acquired two powerconnect 8024f switches and a couple of dell servers. I am trying to implement into existing infrastructure.
Currently I have PFSENSE appliance as firewall. I have set up new vlan for severs and switches to live on and assigned the interface an ip address of 192.168.2.254.
I have ran setup on first 8024f switch and given it an ip address of 192.168.2.1 and set the default gateway to 192.168.2.254. I have enabled DHCP server on this range as well. Currently when I connect a client to the switch they are given an IP address and can ping the 8024f switch but cant ping the firewall or get access to the internet.
I have the exact same setup on another network and it works well. Only difference is it is ubiquity gear.
