Cannot do a vlan layer 3 forwarding on a 5500G-ei

greetings,



I am trying to set up vlan on my network. i created 2 vlans. The manual says that i have to create a vlan interface on the 5500G switch which i did, for each vlan to see each other.



so the setup is:



vlan 1 - interface ip is 172.16.1.1/24



vlan 2  - interface ip is 172.16.2.1/24



vlan 10 - interface ip is 172.16.10.1/24



if i connect to the console port i can ping all the interfaces (vlan 1,2 and 10) . I have also created an access port for each vlan. port 1/0/2 for vlan 2 and port 1/0/10 for vlan 10. when i insert the patch cord to port 2 and configure the computer to have an ip of 172.16.2.5 i can ping the vlan 2 interface. If insert the patch cord to port 10 and configure the computer to have an ip of 172.16.10.5 I can ping vlan 10 interface. But when i try to ping the vlan 2 interface (different subnet) i can't. I must have missed something. It seems that the vlan cannot communicate with each other. any  tips and pointers is much appreciated.



 



Thank you.

The VLAN interface will not came up until you connect at least one host to a port configured with one of these VLANs you have created. If you have a trunk port with all VLANs allowed the interfaces will came up also.
