6200yl configuration

I am trying to configure this switch in ip routing mode so it can be the default gateway on my network, but another router lies behind it. Having trouble getting to get to the outside when I set the new switch as the gateway, but can browse the network fine. Any tips? (Yes, im a rookie btw)

Re: 6200yl configuration

When needing to get from router to the next one and if they are not exchanging route tables (ie, each running a common routing protocol like RIP or OSPF), then you'll need a static route on each router to "point" back to the others' networks.

Example:
if 6200 has networks 10.1.1.0/24 and 10.1.2.0/24 and say its address is 10.1.1.2/24 and it needs to get to "the outside world" thru its neighbor router, then you need this command: 'ip route 0.0.0.0/0 10.1.1.1' (this says if the destination network is not on me, send the traffic to my neighbor which is at 10.1.1.1)

on the "neighbor router" it will need a static route to get the traffic back to the 6200 for at least networks 10.1.1.0 & 10.1.2.0: 'ip route 10.1.0.0/16 10.1.1.2' (this covers networks 10.1.1.0-10.1.255.0), so it sends all traffic that came from 10.1.1.0 & 10.1.2.0 to the 6200.

That worked! Another question, if the outside router and the 6200 are both running RIP, do I need the static route in the outside router to point back to the 6200?

Glad it helped :-)

As long as they both run RIP on their connected interfaces, then no you don't need the static routes. They will exchange their known/connected networks.

However, if the "other router" is internet facing, more typically you would not have RIP on connected interfaces and instead do the static routes.

Re: 6200yl configuration

New question. I have ports 1-24 listed as untagged on a switch. it is vlan_200. the ip is 10.68.24.0 255.255.252.0. pc plugged into one of these ports can browse the network, get to the internet, etc. however, when i try to remote in from a pc with a 172.18.188.* address, i caot, rdp and vnc cannot access it, but can ping it fine. any ideas?
