VLAN's and management

    So I'm playing around with VLANs tonight and came across something where I'm not sure what to do. I think I know the answer but I want to make sure.


    Hosts connected to my master 2950. All in VLAN 50. All accessible. No problems there. Ip of master switch is . This is in the default VLAN 1 .. So the minute I put all my hosts in VLAN 50 I lost telnet to that switch due to it being in a different VLAN. That makes sense.

    I'm consoled into my first breakout switch ( so I can still get to it that way. But from a management perspective what is the correct way to do this?

    If my VLAN 50 includes my main workstation and I would still like to be able to access all these from telnet then I must do inter vlan routing correct? I mean in a production environment having access to these switches is sort of a must and a console connection is not guaranteed. I'm going to make the assumption that in any production environment you rarely see VLAN's without inter VLAN routing...

    I'm hoping that made sense.
