Configuring static routes on 6506

Details: 6506
10 M Ethernet handoff goes into port 4/20 on VLAN 140 IPADDRESS 172.16.120.1

Details: Cat3550
10 M Ethernet hanoff goes into Port 0/20
no switchport
interface IP = 172.16.120.2
enable cdp

CDP neighbor shows that both sides see eachother however I am not certain how to get the routing on the 6506 and the 3550 to send data across this link.  I just one a static route on each side.  So on the 3550 side I was able to do the following:
Config t
ip route 172.16.128.0 255.255.252.0 172.16.120.1
That seems to work

The issue, think is in the 6506 which has a very different IOS command structure.  When I try to do the similar command on the 6506 only with the set command, I get an error saying the destination host is unreachable.
So that is where I am at.  Any ideas on how to get me across to the otherside?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like you've got a hybrid mode 6500. To do routing, first you'll need to get to the route processor (RP). Do a "show module" and you'll see either an MSFC (usually in slot 15) or an MSM. Depending on where the RP is, you'll use the "session 15" (or whatever slot the MSM is in) command to access the command line of the RP.

One you're there, create a VLAN140 interface, assign the ip address to and create the static route.



session 15

enable

config t

int vlan 140

 ip address 172.16.120.1 255.255.255.0

 no shut

ip route <network on the 3550 side> <mask> 172.16.120.2

end

exit
