Please read carefully. What is the syntax to get a layer 3 switch to act functionally equivalent to a router on a stick by routing vlans, but not use an actual router. Every piece of documentation I find refers to an actual router.

Well... It would really help to know what make/model switch.

But assuming a Cisco multilayer switch:

int g0/1 ! Interface connecting to the other (L2) switch
 switchport mode trunk
int vlan 10
 ip address 192.168.10.1 255.255.255.0
int vlan 20
 ip address 192.168.20.1 255.255.255.0
int vlan 30
 ip address 192.168.30.1 255.255.255.0

There you go.  Instant switch on a stick.

I don't have to set up switchport trunk encap dot1q on the trunk port?
The switch in question is either a 3750G-12S-E or a 3850-12S-E

On the 3750's, the default is to negotiate the encapsulation. If you want to manually set it, "switchport trunk encap dot1q" is the command.  IIRC, the 3850's only support dot1q.

And most important command  in global configuration mode :)
ip routing
It is not enabled by default on L3 switches.
And on L3 switch simply forget about router on a stick, you don't need it.

So just setting IP routing...setting up a trunk line (assumed open to all the various VLANs)... Assign a subnet to each vlan and they all intercommunicate? Thank You
