Cisco 3400 Metro Switch Configuration help
Posted on 2010-11-24
Wondering is someone can help me out here. We just had a Cogent Layer 3 fiber service dropped into our office and they told us to get a Cisco 3400 Layer 3 Switch to work with the service. We picked up the Cisco ME-3400-24TS-A switch. I have upgraded the FW to the latest MetroIPAccess build.
We have two blocks of ip's from Cogent (ip's changed to mask the real ones), they provided the following
22.214.171.124 (Cogent Router)
126.96.36.199 (Our Router IP and attached to FasterEthernet 0/1 on Cisco)
They also provided a second block with the following ips
I have successfully configured FastEthernet 0/1 to work with the assigned router and ip address and I can ping all ip's outside our network and I can connect to the switch from the outside via the .46 ip. I used a static route :
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 188.8.131.52
So questions now, how do I get the second block of ip's to work? I am assuming I need to assign an ip on the switch to be my gateway ip for the 184.108.40.206 and route the ip traffic to the cogent router 220.127.116.11
How do I setup the rest of the ethernet ports so that I can just plug a firewall into any port and assign a static ip from the 18.104.22.168/25 I know I have to run a no shutdown command and no switch on the ports I want to use.
Please let me know if you need anymore info to help out!
Thanks so much
