ProCurve 2626 - Trunking Question


ProCurve 2626 - Trunking Question

I am unable to connect to other clients on the 2626 which are members of VLAN_1 or VLAN_2 from VLAN_3. I able to ping the IP addresses of VLAN_1 ( and VLAN_2 ( from VLAN_3 (, but cannot ping any other IPs connected to VLAN_1 or VLAN_2.

I should mention that the client machine being used for testing on VLAN_3 is uplinked to VLAN_3 via an unmanaged switch. I think this may be the problem. I tried assigning the Uplink to VLAN_3 as a Trunk, but this did not work. It looks like there can only be one trunk per switch and secondary trunks are only for fault tolerance?

The config for the switch is as follows:

Running configuration:

Do I need to purchase another managed switch in order to uplink to VLAN_3 from another switch?

Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.

Re: ProCurve 2626 - Trunking Question

There shouldn't be any issues assigning a trunk to a VLAN - the trunk just needs to be treated like a standalone port and tagged appropriately.

Just to make sure, are you aware of the differences of a trunk in regards to HP vs. Cisco terminology?

Port aggregation = HP (Trunk), Cisco (Fast EtherChannel)

Port tagged with multiple VLAN traffic = HP (Inter-switch link / Uplink), Cisco (Trunk)
