So I contacted support and they said that I needed to set up a VLAN to accomplish what I am asking for. I took their directions and tried but with no luck. So I'm wondering if someone can help me with a VLAN for dummies tutorial. Here is what I would to do. Back story: I do a lot of live streaming for UCF and I use a Tricaster 8000 with NDI capabilities. I just got new cameras that use the same Network Delivery Interface protocol and would like to start using them. Power, video and control all use the same Cat 5e or Cat 6 cable. These all go into my T-Link switch and then the switch is connected to the university network to access YouTube or Facebook. UCF IT does not like the idea of a "rogue" switch on the network. What I would like to do is set 2-3 ports that access the network, with the streaming computer on one of those ports, and then the remaining ports stay within in their own VLAN so they don't connect to the network, but I need the streaming computer to also talk to that VLAN so it can connect with the cameras for video.
I'm having trouble setting up that senario. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
