IP Routing - HP Procure 2650

We’ve got a HP Procurve 2650 switch and we want to use it to replace a Linux router currently in use in a small data centre environment (40 odd servers, less than 10mb internet throughput).

We have a /23 assigned from our upstream with a WAN IP.

I’m wondering if someone can assist or point me in the right direction to configure this device? I’ve been reading over a lot of the documentation but I think I’m missing something as I can’t seem to get it work.

Any suggestions?

Hi

The ProCurve 2600 series is a managed switch with basic L3 IP routing.
It can route between its connected Vlans, plus you can configure some static routes as well.

Whats the scenario in your case? what are your plans for the 2600 ?

Explain more about the setup you have, and for sure you will find the help.

Good Luck !!!

We did plan to set it up so that it would be our gateway device. Have we got this wrong?

Hi

Basically, if you have multiple Vlans on this 2600 switch, what you need is enable ip routing, in the CLI:

2600(config)#ip routing.

You can have also few static routing for other LANs on your network, and also you can define the default route :
2600(config)#ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 a.b.c.d (a.b.c.d is your internet router).

Good Luck !!!

Of course, the VLAN interfaces must have IP addresses configured on them.

a.b.c.d should be the IP address of the device of your ISP (to which your switch is connected), and one VLAN that you define in the switch should have the IP address (in the same subnet as a.b.c.d) that your ISP gave you for your Internet connection. All IP packets destined for Internet (i.e. who's destination address are not among adresses you defined for your VLAN interfaces) will go to your ISP device and from there into Internet.
