communicate between VLANs?

We recently had a Toshiba phone system installed on our network and the consultants decided to put this on a separate VLAN/subnet than the rest of our equipment.  This VLAN was set up on our Layer3 HP Switch.

If my laptop is on one subnet (192.168.1.x) can it communicate direclty with this other subnet (10.10.1.x)?

I'd like to be able to manage some of the phone system devices without having to plug into a different port and set myself with a static IP.

Thanks

you will need to setup a router between the 2 vlans inorder to communicate between them.  Depending on how the tech set it up you may be able to.  The layer 3 switch should have the capabilities to route between the 2 vlans.

do you have any experience with HP switches... from what I've seen a layer 3 is basically a router within a switch so I was thinking I could do just from the switch... but have never configed one of these.

That switch definitely supports static routes.  I'm seeing if I can find the command for you.  I'm not too familure with the HP switches.  Also if the switch is not your default gateway then you will need to add a route on the default gateway pointing to the switch.

Found a reference guide for configuring ProCurve Switches.  On page 38 it talks about static routes. See if that helps you much:

To setup routing these are the steps:
Asign IP's to the vlans you want to participate in routing.
Start routing process on switch.
Defaut GW's point to relevant vlanIP's on L3-sw.

hi, thanks for the replies.

is there a command I can run to see what VLANs have already been created and if they have an iP address assigned to them already?

Thanks
