2920 intervlan routing (another intervlan issue)

Hi Guys,

I know that there are a lot of quesiton about intervlan routing on here (and gernearlly on the internet) and it seems that there is some basic information that is either being missed or passed over by us network admins. With that I have run in to the same problem, I am not getting any traffic between vlans.  Can anyone see anything glaring in the below config.

Currently we can ping from the default vlan to its gateway and also the gateway of any vlan that has live connections,  but we cant ping any of the machines on the other vlans - yes I have checked the machines gateway and firewall (which is turned off).  From the non default vlans we are only able to ping that vlans gateway address.

We can ping the machines from the switch

We have tried updating the firmware to latest version and we have gone back to factory defaults, and setup as basic as possible to make sure it works.

This switch will be handling all the company routing so we dont need any ip default-gateway as we will be using static routing on this switch to route external traffic onwards, but just want to get intervlan routing working first.

Switch info:


version: WB.16.01.0004, ROM WB.15.05

All I am going to say at this point is "I am a Muppet!"

On of the test clients had a ghost secondary gateway, which was not showing in the tcp/ip settings.

Flushed the gateways and readded the correct one and everything starts working.

Note to future self: Always check the clients!
