Thanks a lot guys, you are very kind answering so quick. good to build a
"community" like this.
does this also apply for the AP ?? I mean if I do a VLAN preventing user not
to see each other thorugh the switch , the ones connected to the AP will not
see each other as well??
One more , one FreeBSD I am running a Squid Proxy Web Cache, would they be
able to cache their pages even when they are in the VLAN? Thans again ...
