5406 vlan routing issue

5406 vlan routing issue

5406 vlan routing issue

We have a 5406 switch with 3 vlans. Vlan 1 with gateway (, vlan 2 with and vlan 9 with ( Ip routing is enabled, and there are no access lists.

Vlans 1 and 2 can ping anything. Vlan 9 however can ONLY ping vlan 2. There are no  acls set. Anyone have any clues as to what I can check next?

RE: 5406 vlan routing issue

If VLANs 1 & 2 can ping anything, does that mean devices on VLANs 1 & 2 can ping devices on VLAN 9?

RE: 5406 vlan routing issue


Yes VLANs 1 & 2 can both ping VLAN 9, VLAN 9 can ping VLAN 2, but not VLAN 1.

Config is:

module 1 type J8707A
module 2 type J8702A
module 3 type J8702A
module 5 type J8702A
module 6 type J8702A
module 9 type J8702A
module 10 type J8702A

I can ping the inside of our firewall, which is in the VLAN 1 range, but any other server fails. I did note however that when I try to ping, our firewall creates an outbound connection?

RE: 5406 vlan routing issue

what is this for:

ip address  

RE: 5406 vlan routing issue


That is a legacy entry. The old network guy was planning to migrate us away from our 194 range, but we then got pushed into the 172.18 range by our parent company.

RE: 5406 vlan routing issue

The successful ping VLAN1-->VLAN9 proves that ICMP reply packets are successfully travelling VLAN9-->VLAN1
That would indicate your device on VLAN1 has Windows firewall blocking ICMP.
