Simple Routing on 2910AL Procurve

Posted on 2011-10-19
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I am setting up 2 Procurve Switches for an iScsi network but want any devices I attach to these switches to be able to access other networks as well.   I thought this would be simple but I am missing something if anyone has any ideas.  Berlow is my running config.  From my understanding, having the IP Default-Gateway does not affect the situation since I have routing turned on.  I can ping from the switch itself but cannot from any clients attached to that default VLAN so it is routing between VLANS but no further except from the switch.

hostname "Procurve 1"
time timezone -5
module 1 type J9145A
ip default-gateway
ip routing
vlan 1
   name "DEFAULT_VLAN"
   untagged 1-22,24
   ip address
   no untagged 23
vlan 30
   name "Vlan30"
   untagged 23
   ip address
ip route
router rip

    Default gateway of clients should point to IP of their vlan ( or )
    on the there shoud be routes back
    like mask  via

    I think I woud try changing 'ip default-gateway' to
    ip default-gateway

    I do have that route added on (route back).

    It was my understanding that the switch does not use that default gateway command anyway once routing is turned on but I started the config over and did not put a default gateway in and have same result.  From the Procurve itself I can ping any client in the 192.168.3.x or 192.168.1.x subnets but clients in eithger subnet cannot ping each other or access each...basically the switch is routing its own traffic but not the clients.  I do have the default gateway set on the IP of the VLAN.

    So clients do respond to ping.
    No firewall-rules?
    From your config I see no sign of management vlan config .
    I see no ACL's
    so everything seems fine
    are netmasks all over?

    Ok, I had a typo on the firewall route.  I can now ping from a client in the 192.168.3.x subnet back to  Can't go any further to any other 192.168.1.x clients nor the internet but I suspect that is a rule on the firewall blocking that.  Thanks for your guidance.
