Cisco Catalyst 4948> Device can't be seen by others unless they are on the same subnet
Posted on 2010-08-23
Earlier I posted a question about configuring an IP for my Cisco 4948..
I got a solid response from Kvistofta and here it is:
ip http server
ip address 10.1.98.3 255.255.0.0
ip default-gateway 10.1.2.1
line vty 0 4
password <your password>
enable secret <your password>
http to your switch and login with blank username and the enable-password you entered above as password. "
This worked fine but from a workstation not using 10.1.2.1 as it's gateway the device is not pingable. I know the problem is with the 4948 switch because when I use the cat5 connected to the 'MAIN' switch and directly connect it to my laptop instead of thru the 4948 the laptop pulls 10.1.98.112 and it is pingable from everywhere. What do you think I'm missing in the configuration of the 4948 that is preventing it from being seen by those not on the 10.1.2.1 gateway?
