Hi Expert

The topology and config are below. R3 is layer 3 switch, R2 is layer 2 switch, and R1 is PC
R1(PC) can ping 12.0.0.2 and 12.0.0.3, but cannot ping 34.0.0.3. R2(layer 2 switch) can ping 34.0.0.3

Why cannot R1 ping 34.0.0.3 ? After I added command "ip routing" in R2, R2 became layer 3 switch and R3 can ping 34.0.0.3 Thank you

If R1(PC) set default-gateway as 12.0.0.2, should the PC be able to ping 34.0.0.3 ?

Yes, it will. Because once r2 SVI gets the packets, it forwards them to its default gateway R3, are intervlan is happening in R3.

Yes, I also think so. but in the previous test where I set default-gateway as 12.0.0.2 in PC, the PC could not ping 34.0.0.3. After you posted your first comment, I changed the default-gate to 34.0.0.3 or 34.0.0.2, and then the PC is able to ping 34.0.0.3

I tried these several time. and i got the same result. i do not know why
