I can access the switch via ssh through the Mgmt port. Fine. But what I need to know is how can I access the switch via SSH through any of the front ports, 1 to 48. And is there a way to create different Virtual Routers for each vlan.
As long as the port is assigned to a VLAN with an IP address, you can use it to access the CLI over SSH. On models that support user-created VRs, you can assign them to a given Virtual Router. The necessity of doing that could be debated though.
