Re: Beginners switch setup question.

Thanks for your replies.

Michael:
Will test that tomorrow. If I can't ping 192.168.20.1 from the router what kind of route do I need to setup on the router?
A route from the router to the switch's IP adress (192.168.10.10) or to the specific VLAN IP?


Shadow:
"what is the gateway configured on the pc ?"
Gateway address on the pc used for testing is set to 192.168.20.1, which is the IP address of VLAN20.

Re: Beginners switch setup question.

Hi Pete,

as i wrote earlier you need a route like:
ip route 192.168.20.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.10.10
to stay in HP terms, but the syntax might be different on your router.
The route means that all traffic for clients in the 192.168.20.0 should go to the device with the ip 192.168.10.10, cos this device knows of that subnet.
