Firewall intergration into a data network

by select1967 / January 21, 2016 9:38 AM PST

Hi looking for a little help

We are looking to connect multiple vlans onto our 8650e data switch which will in turn be connected a number of Alcatel cloud based omnipcx oxo RCS telephone systems.

we are basically creating a mini voice hub with the leased link connected and sip/vlans/WAN connections (engineered by our network supplier).

the issue I have is integrating the NETGEAR SRX5308 Firewall into the equations.

I have tested the link and missing out the firewall and proved the circuit is live.

we have a 8650e 48 port switch installed.

our network is setup as follows :

Cisco router (where the leased link terminates) - 4 ports - ports 1-3 are programmed as 'trunk' ports supporting VLAN 1 ( local connection and VLAN 3 public - ive been told i only need one of the ports to connect to my network.

i have discussed this with a people and have been given various solutions :

1. Cisco trunk port connected to WAN port 1 of the NETGEAR firewall - connected patch lead accordingly
2. program the WAN port on the NETGEAR switch with the relevant public IP info given by vender - carried this out link showing live
3. program two VLANSs 1 & 3 onto LAN port 1 of the NETGEAR firewall - programmed
4. program port 1/1 on the 8650e with 802.1q tagging -'trunk port'
5. associate VLAN 1 & 3 to that port ?
6. create numerous VLANs onto port 10-20 with relevant VLANs 10-20 for each OXO telephone cpu

Now my questions :

how to i allow my new VLAN's 10-20 to default root back though port 1 ( my trunk port with VLAN 1 &3 ) towards the firewall ?
what ip gateway address would be needed to be programmed for each OXO on their separate VLANs & how ?
i know i can program an ip interface to each port and attach a VLAN to the port is that correct ?
is there any routing required with the 8650e switch ?

what would be required to route/program within the firewall ?

hope this makes sense.

thank you in advance for any help.

If not, they don't deserve the sale.

While I have worked such issues before, it was for hire and pay. The technical aspect meant an investment in documentation as well as solving it.

Today you find newer IT staffers exploding over having to pay for such or not getting answers from their vendors.

Here, this forum is mostly about the consumer grade stuff. For what you noted, that's best sent back to the maker and their support. If they fail, they lose the sale!

I'm afraid that for questions like this, you need local support from an expert, most likely your network supplier, but maybe some free-lancer with the right expertise and experience.

We are mainly a consumer-oriented forum, and I doubt if any consumer has installed the devices you mention.
