    i want to vlan my voice from the data network. we have managed switches in place and 4 vlans in place already.
    obviously, if we seperate the phones side from the data, we will lose some functionality from elastix ie web frontend for users eg fax visor, call logs, agenda etc
    is there anyway around this or is it a case of installing an extra nic?
    any pointers would be appreciated.

    You can do that, but I don't think it could work with vlans. I think you can configure vlans in Linux so that on ethernet card could be associated to two vlans.I really don't know how to do that, but I know is doable.

    The extre nic is not that much of a bad idea. Ethernet cards noramally are cheap, and if you don't have enough pci ports you can use usb adapters.

    Maybe this helps:

    If you have 2 VLAN, you need a router by VLAN to communicate with each other.
    It's so easy with a switch level 3 (cisco for example).
