procurve 2650. Routing subnets through the switch
Posted on 2009-04-29
This is my first experience using a layer 3 switch so i'm sure i'm missing something. I read a few of the other procurve switch posts on here but i still must me missing something.
Heres the layout:
192.168.20.0 internet gateway 192.168.20.2
192.168.40.0 internet gateway 192.168.40.2
What i would like to accomplish:
We merged with another company and are now occupying the same building. they have multiple subnets under 192.168 that can all see each other. We have one network (192.168.20.0) We would like to share some resources so that we don't have to duplicate equipment. We needed a new switch so i bought a layer3 switch figuring that I could use that switch to connect the two networks. My thinking was that we could assign a port on the switch to our network, assign a port on the switch to their network and let the switch do the routing between the two with minimal changes to existing ip addresses. We don't want to completely merge the networks but sharing a few devices would make things much simpler.
At the moment I can ping the address that they gave me (that i assigned to a port on the switch) from our network but I cannot ping through the switch to other ip addresses on their side.
here is the running config
ip default-gateway 192.168.20.2
snmp-server community "public" Unrestricted
ip addresses 192.168.20.252 255.255.255.0
no untagged 46,48
ip addresses 192.168.40.50 255.255.255.0
HP ProCurve Switch 2650#
On our (20 network)sonicwall router I have the following route
metric 20 priority 1
So now from anywhere on the 20 network I can ping 192.168.40.50 but nothing else on the 40 or their other networks.
Any help pointing out what i am missing would be greatly appreciated.
