running into a current problem where my 10+ years of routing and switching experience is drawing a major blank (embarassed).

i have an HP procurve environment comprised of a core with a highly subnetted 192.168.x.x/24

I have a need to connect us up to a different network made up of a bunch or extreme switches on a 172.16.101.x/24 network for switch management on vlan 400.

I have been able to trunk vlan 400 from the hp to the extreme network.

From my core switch (or any switch that has vlan 400 on it) I can ping any switch address on the 172.16.101.x network so I know i have vlan 400 passed all the way through to the extreme network

From my pc I can not ping any of the 172.16.101.x switch addresses

What stupidly obvious thing here am I drawing a blank on.

Thanks in advance.
