connect HP procurve 2910al switch to cisco router

we have a 2910al switch that needs to connect to a cisco router. We have been given instructions to configure a port on our switch to talk to the router, but these are instructions for another cisco switch not a HP one. The instructions are as follows...
config t
port 23
description***Connection to Orange router-Fa0/1***
no switchport
ip address 10.xx.xxx.xxx 255.xxx.xxx.xxx
no ip redirects
no ip proxy-arp
speed 100
duplex full
no shut
ip route 10.xx.xx.x 255.xxx.xxx.xxx.x 10.xxx.xxx.xxx
end
Is this possible to do with a 2910al switch - I think it maybe but not sure if I have to do a vlan???

I don't have a HP switch handy to test it out on but HP and Cisco CLI are very close to each other, if you have a little bit of experience with either you should be able to turn that Cisco config into a HP one, commands may be placed slightly different in menus or be named slightly different, but it should definately be doable.
Using the help and auto-complete features ("?" and tab, if memory serves) will definately also make your life easier.

I see nothing in the config that indicates that a VLAN should be necessary to make the connection work.

Hi,

it is possible:

ip routing
vlan 1
 ip add x.x.x.x x.x.x..x
vlan 2
 untagged 23
 ip address 10.xx.xxx.xxx 255.xxx.xxx.xxx

ip route 10.xx.xx.x 255.xxx.xxx.xxx.x 10.xxx.xxx.xxx

Sure it is possible, but your original configuration does not mention VLANs anywhere, so I don't see what leads you to believe you need a VLAN to make it work?

As I understand it port 23 will be the one connected to your Cisco router, right? Unless it is configured with vlan 2 I see no reason to untag it on port 23, maybe you could post the configuration for the port on the Cisco router that this switch will be connected to?

hi all, I want to perform L3 routing on the port 23 on the switch. from my limited knowledge, I know that you can create a vlan and give this an IP address and also would have to setup this up on the router- how do I give a layer 3 interconnect IP address to the switch interface port 23. The router is out with my control but the config for this is
conf t
interface fastEthernet0/1
ip address 10.xxx.xxx.xxx 255.xxx.xxx.xxx
speed 100
duplex full
no shut
router bgp 65000
network 10.xxx.xxx.xxx mask 255.xxx.xxx.xxx

Hi All, done some digging on the web and vendors like HP, Foundry ... "have a Vlan interface basis for the purpose of routing, unlike Cisco when you turn on a Switch port to a L3 router interface with no switchport command"
If this is the case then would the config that ikalmer suggested work and what would I have to get done on the cisco router side?
Thanks for your time.

Hi,

Hi ikalmer, so if I setup up the vlan as you suggested on the switch ....

ip routing
vlan 1
 ip add x.x.x.x x.x.x..x
vlan 2
 untagged 23
 ip address 10.xx.xxx.xxx 255.xxx.xxx.xxx

ip route 10.xx.xx.x 255.xxx.xxx.xxx.x 10.xxx.xxx.xxx

then get the guys that look after the cisco router to setup the vlan there end. Would that work??

Your  vlan 2 comes untagged out on port 23, so no new needs for that matter in Cisco end.

On the other hand if you plan vlan1 ip address to be in an other range like fx 172.16.x.x or 192.168.x.x the cisco would need to have a static route to vlan1-network via ip address 10.xx.xxx.xxx 255.xxx.xxx.xxx (=IP of vlan2)
