Connect Cisco 4402 WLC WLAN VLAN to HP Procurve

hello all,

Not sure what I am doing incorrectly... Have a WLC with the app and management bound to port 1 untagged for vlan 1. This is connected to one  one switch using the 172.0.0.0/16 network. I also have a guest vlan 8 created and bound to port 2 using 172.16.0.0/16. This port is attached to a procurve gb managed switch with a matching vlan 8 and  an IP address acting as the gateway for the vlan 8.  

Issue: cannot ping the WLC interface from switch and vice Vera. Appreciate the help in advance.

Glen

Is this a Q regarding L3 operation (routing) on a HP?
To route there must be a
IP ROUTING
statement

vlan1 network = 172.0.0.0/16 , a typo?

output from show run would be nice

More about mapping vlans from a cisco to hp. The address is a supernet.

I can get a run posted. Maybe WLC will not accept supernet but that would be strange.  Too new to this hardware to know if that would be a limitation.  It does hand out dhcp addresses using that scope I think that the supernet is not the problem.

I'll reset to a classfull c mask to check instead of the cidr.

Anyone else ever map cisco and hp vlans?

Thx for any help.

On the WLC set the management and guest interfaces VLAN to 0.  This means 'untagged'.

On the HP switch...

vlan 1
 untagged 1
vlan 8
 untagged 2

Open in new window

Try that and see how it goes.  If you're still stuck post the switch config.

That worked. I was handling the WLC like another router and thought the guest interface needed to be configured to be on the same vlan as the procurve was set. In my case the vlan was 8 on the procurve, so i had set the wlc to 8 also. what did i miss here?

You tagged on the WLC but untagged on the HP. That won't work.
