HP5304 intervlan routing puzzler HELP PLEASE!

I have defined 3 vlans on an HP5304 and want to route between these vlans
The three vlans are
vlan2 160.213.X.X and

I have a host on vlan2 with a 160.213.X.X address plugged into a vlan2 port which for some reason is unable to contact another host in the same vlan2 on a 10.41.2.X address???

Can someone point me in the right direction as to why this doesn't work & also have I done enough to configure inter vlan routing between these VLANS ?

I have included the routing table of the switch as well as the switch config. This was configured my my predecessor so I was unfamiliar with the initial setup

Switch Config

HP ProCurve Switch 5304XL# sho ip route

IP Route Entries

Destination Gateway VLAN Type Sub-Type Metric Dist.
------------------ --------------- ---- --------- ---------- ---------- ----- 1 static 1 1 VLAN_2 2 connected 0 0 3 static 1 1 reject static 0 250 lo0 connected 0 0 VLAN_2 2 connected 0 0 VLAN_1 1 connected 0 0 VLAN_3 3 connected 0 0

Re: HP5304 intervlan routing puzzler HELP PLEASE!

The config looks right. I'd recommend you update the firmware though.

Check your clients are pointed to their right default gateways, 160.213.X.X and

If you're using a ping test make sure the clients firewalls have been disabled if set.
