Help with HP 5406ZL routing


I am having some routing issues with the setup below. I setup port A14 on VLAN 30 and when I hookup a pc to this port, it can communicate to the VLAN 1 address. In addition, I can ping the gateway and the gateway can ping a pc on VLAN 30 such as However, when a PC on the network tries to ping VLAN 30, I cannot do it (request timed out).

Re: Help with HP 5406ZL routing

first, the default gateway entry in your config doesn't do anything.. it doesn't work as a route..
you need a route at your switch:
ip route
but i don't think that thats causing your problem..

Re: Help with HP 5406ZL routing

I added the route of I can ping my default gateway (Cisco 2811), however, I cannot ping any pc on VLAN 1. For a test, I setup the similar environment within Cisco Packet Tracer and with IP Routing on a 3560, I can ping between PCs on VLAN 1 and VLAN 30 and ping the gateway. Though I am used to Cisco and not HP, I thought things would be similar.

Would I have to tag a port to VLAN 30? Also w/ Cisco, you can set the switchport mode either trunk/access...or dynamic. By default in HP is the port set to access (for client PCs?)

Let me know if any other information is needed. Thanks.

Hi Rich
