I am pretty new to Cisco so please bare with me.
I am setting up a 4506 switch w/ a sup IV as a core switch with 5 Dell 3348 Switches as my access points.
I intend on trunking each Dell switch to the one of the Cisco ports obviously with dot1q.
As a pre-test I tried trunking one Dell switch and test the current network which is 192.168.1.0. I created VLAN's on the Cisco and assigned VLAN 2 with 192.168.1.254.
I created additional VLAN's:
VLAN 10 192.168.10.1
VLAN 20 192.168.20.1
VLAN 30 192.168.30.1
etc... I have a total of 9 VLAN's.
We have a PIX that is 192.168.1.1 that is our GW to the Inet. From the Cisco switch console I can ping any ip on the existing 1.0 network.
From the pix I can ping the Cisco switch 1.254 but I can not ping any vlan IP on the cisco. If I add route from the PIX such as ip route 192.168.10.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.254 I can then ping the 10.0 subnet.
Now if I connect a node on the Cisco switch and assign it any of the vlans (not vlan 2) and give it an IP of lets say 192.168.10.5 and GW of 10.1 I can ping anything on the cisco switch switch is obviously handling the InterVLAN fine. But if I ping outside of the switch such as the pix I can't get out.
Also if I add a static route on the node connected to a Dell switch:
route add 192.168.10.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.254
The routing works fine.
On the cisco switch I added
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1
From what I have read this config should be ok for the InterVLAN and having the route out of the switch to 1.1 for Inet.
Do I need to enable RIP/EIGRP/OSPF?
I was hoping to avoid enabling one of these as I haven't messed with much of the routing protocols.
I attached excerpts of the cisco config.
