Static Routing between two subnets using a SMC 6724L3 Layer 3 Switch
Posted on 2006-10-25
I am trying to figure out how I can use a SMC layer 2/3 switch to route between two subnets. I have an existing subnet 192.168.0.x with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. The second subnet is a 192.168.5.x with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0.
Hosts on both subnets must be able to communicate with each other and also access the internet. The intended goal is to allow communication between both subnets, without having to change the gateway or subnet mask on all my hosts and network equipment. The switch has two vlans configured. The ip interface address on vlan 1 is 192.168.0.26 255.255.255.0; vlan 2 has an ip interface address of 192.168.5.1 255.255.255.0. The default gateway for my current hosts on the .0.x subnet is 192.168.0.4. The default gateway for the switch is not set.
Any ideas on what routes to create to acheive my objective?
