pinging between # Vlans

Unanswered Question
Jul 13th, 2007

After you do the InterVlan configuration (ex. vlan2 and vlan3), should you be able to ping a device in vlan 3 from a device in vlan 2?

I'm trying to ping the device, no response.. what am i missing here?

I have this problem too.

Here is what i did:

switch3560(config)#int vlan 2

switch3560(config-if)#ip address

switch3560(config-if)# no shut

switch3560(config)#int vlan 3

switch3560(config-if)#ip address

switch3560(config-if)# no shut

switch3560(config)#ip routing


i have a device (device1) on vlan 2 with an IP of and a device (device2) on vlan 3 with an IP of

when i ping device2 from device1 i get destination unreachable. i'm assuming the intervlan is not working..???

Just worndering if you have enabled the IP Routing?

I have had a similar situation in the past, only to know later that I didnt enable IP Routing.

Switch(config)# ip routing

Please try the above command and let us know


Please rate if it helps

well if you check my previous answer, you see that the last command was ip routing.

I got at a point where i can't find any solution, and i'm sure it is very simple.

i have this final try: is there a different between making no shut on one interface or making it on a range of interfaces, for ex.:

switch(config)#int range vlan 2-10

switch(config-if)#no shut


switch(config)#int vlan

switch(config-if)#no shut

Sorry I missed the last line.

This is really surprising.

Could you please do a trace from the hosts and also ping both the hosts from router?

Moreover, if you could enable debug ip packet and debug ip icmp, you should be able to see whats going on.

make sure the hosts you are trying to ping from are properly assign with their respective vlan 2 and 3.


host should be in vlan 2

host should be in vlan 3

on the hosts switch port interface add

switchport access vlan 2 ( for )

switchport access vlan 3 ( for )

1.use the command " show ip route"

r u able to see both of the route as connected route

2. try static routing in "both direction"

then try to ping

3. try extended ping if the switch support

4 . also look for " ip classless" command
