2810 Static Routes

Hi,

We have a 2810 as the core switch in out network. Our Cisco PIX is connected to this device as well as the department switches(192.168.1.0/24). Is there a way to create subnets on this device? From CLI I am not able to set 'ip route xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx' etc.

If not is there another way to do this, perhaps through VLANs?

thanks

Re: 2810 Static Routes

The 2810 does not support ip routing.

You can still create VLANs, but will need an external router if you need connectivity between them.

You can set a default gateway on the 2810 though for managing the switch if need be.

ProCurve Switch 2810-24G(config)# ip default-gateway
IP-ADDR IP address of the default gateway.

Thanks. I did create some VLANs that will work just fine. Really wish I'd looked closer at the 2810 missing that feature. Ah well.

Re: 2810 Static Routes

If your mngmnt could afford a Cisco PIX, I would push for a Cisco L3 device for inter-VLAN routing. Can't beat Cisco at routing - their routing is the real deal, not marketing.

Uplink the real router to the 2810 witch as many fiber/copper physical links as you need tied together (this is called "link aggregation"), then use 802.1Q for VLAN tagging over the aggreagted links.

Be aware, tho, that "trunking" is a different concept for Cisco vs. HP.

Re: 2810 Static Routes

We actually just got a Cisco ASA 5510 device in that has multiple interfaces in that will suit the needs. Unfortunately the interfaces don't run at 1000 but I'll make do.


thanks.
