Mind sharing the particulars?

Like when you say they are each in their own network... that has a lot of different meanings.

What OS these servers are running might be the kind of information worth sharing in a post.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

it' just a theorectical senario... but lets just say windows server 2008 it does'nt really matter but i wanna add that it is a health based system each server is connected to a group of 15 computer and each computer is supoose to connect to any of the server to all them to work together

That's a very specific theoretical situation. I'd almost think it was a homework question but you wouldn't cheat on your homework, would you?

What made you think up this theoretical situation?

Definitely does sound like a home work question, not one I could answer of the top of my head. But if I had to answer a question like this I would be franticly typing one word into Google - forest!

With other words as well otherwise you could become very knowledgeable about tree which is not what you want.

Actually, the OP answered their own question, in their very first post:

i'm trying to connect 5 servers together to create a private network.

Drop all but the last four words and there you have it, your answer.........

NOTE: I don't typically answer homework questions. But I just wanted to point out how much good attending class regularly, and most importantly, paying attention is.

first you may give static ip in all server with same range. then you may configure on P C as a Domain controller, install Active Directory user and groups. after that you many connect via domain to the rest computer and every and each computer share the resource from domain. like secoundary domain etc. if you want more information regarding this you may contact via emial

What I think is that you completely misunderstand what VPN and VLAN is designed to do.

well guys....i decided to use a VLAN topology to internetwork the servers....apparently i did'nt get different ideas from other readers(which is what i was looking for.....Stuart:Vpn uses the public infrastucture to network while vlan subnets networks to make them seem like they are as one over long geographical locatons..correct me if i'm wrong.I choose Vlan vecause of its security capabilities.
Correct me again if u think it's wrong or if there is a better way of network these servers,,
thanks again guys...

I answered your question in my first response. You really don't pay any attention at all...........that's the problem with kids today.

What part of "create a private network" is it you're having trouble understanding?

If you can't grasp that basic idea may I suggest you prepare yourself for a career at McDonald's or Burger King.

I think you will have probably realised that you are not going to get a detailed layout; that kind of thing costs money, lots of it, not to mention a lot more information than you have provided.

As a student you are expected to do your own research and work it out for yourself. That means that when you have to do it for real you will know what you are doing and will not have to ask someone else how to do it. In short, you earn your money from your own skills, not someone else's.

I think knowing the difference between a beefburger and a hamburger is going to be a valuable skill for you to learn as you obviously don't know the difference between VPN and VLAN and seem incapable working it out.

What StuartS said.

I will tell you this much, VLAN's aren't necessary to this assignment.

A VPN is completely the wrong technology. A VPN is used when you wish to go from one private network to another and have to traverse a public network (like the internet). What you're talking about is going to be pretty much contained within one room (data center) so no VPN is required.

Here's the last bit of help I'm going to give you. You need each server to be on two networks at the same time. One, the network that allows clients to access resources on the servers. The second, for your private network so the servers can communicate with each other.

Come back when you're done and show us what you came up with and I'll be happy to offer some input.

There is no one single "correct" answer. I can think of two different ways to do this off the top of my head and both are equally as correct.
