Recently I configured a simple basic VLAN setup on Cisco 3750 switch and connected it with a Mikrotik Routerboard using a trunk port. VLAN setup is as follows.
Mikrotik Router LAN Port = 10.0.0.0.1/24 [Connected with Cisco 3750 Port 1 , trunk]
Cisco 3750 Port 1 = Trunk, connected with Mikrotik Port 2 = Vlan10 = 10.1.0.0/24 [User Group 1] Port 3 = Vlan20 = 10.2.0.0/24 [User Group 2] Port 3 = Vlan30 = 10.3.0.0/24 [FTP Media Sharing Server 1] Port 4 = Vlan40 = 10.4.0.0/24 [FTP Media Sharing Server 2]
The PPPoE Server is configured on RB & All users internet is working fine via dialing into it. and they are able to ping each other. This part is ok ,
Now the problem is if user starts download heavy files from FTP Media Sharing Server 1/2 , there traffic is passing through the Mikrotik router which puts load on the RB's CPU (as the trunk traffic bandwidth reaches in GB which chocks the Mikrotik port traffic as well]
Is there any way User Group can access FTP media sharing without going through the Mikrotik router, and somehow connect with FTP locally by switch port directly?
