Hi,

Does anyone know if it's possible to configure a default gateway for the switch to use.

I'm trying to telnet into the switch, but it's IP address is on a different subnet and I can't connect to it.

If the default gateway option is not possible (it is on 3com switches), then what is the best solution?

Hi
use the  "ip default-gateway <IP of router>" command under the global configuration mode.

switch(config)# ip default-gateway  <IP of router>
