Well, Ben, Peter and James are unanimous even in the wording :-) I agree the cleanest way is to use separate IP networks but I'm using about 65 vlans for now, and it may increase in the future. This means I cannot do it without using invalid addresses so I preferred the other way. I'll have a look at bridging all vlans and using iptables/ebtables to control traffic. It might be feasible if the number of rules doesn't get too large. As for explaining what I'm doing, I think you've all understood it but maybe you don't believe it :-) It's really just the opposite of the usual: instead of having each machine be able to talk to every other (this is what the switch does), restrict communication to each machine <-> servers only, plus some groups. Thanks a lot for the good answers.
