You should be able to ping vlan 1 but unless you have at least one active port in the other vlans the layer 3 interface will not be active and you won't be able to ping those.

I am not clear from your post whether the PC was able to access other things - for example could it ping the physical interface address - or was the only problem in ping to the virtual address? Also what VLAN was the port assigned to that the PC connected to? Perhaps you can clarify this for us.

Hi Dan,

What is the status of the VLAN interfaces, are they UP/UP, in order to have them up, you need at least one port connected in the respective VLAN or an active trunk port.

Hi Dan ,

Please paste " show vlan " and "show int " for better understanding of vlan status and ports assigned to valns..

Cheers :
