Possible VLAN routing issue

Unanswered Question

Here is the issue, I have a printer ( on vlan 8, if I am on another vlan say 6 ( (Routing between vlans seems to be fine) I cannot ping this printer, but if I am located locally within vlan 8 I can ping it just fine. This is the only device that is having this issue. Here is the topology. 3750 Core in a stack environment with 3550/3560 down line connected with trunk links. Everything is located locally. Ideas? I also checked everything as far as layer 2 goes, Mac-addresses match up to specified ports. All switches in the network appear to know the printer and which switch it is located. My thought is this is something to do with the jet direct card inside the printer.

I have this problem too.

Can you confirm

1) You can ping other devices within vlan 8 from vlan 6 ?

2) That the printer has a default-gateway configured and that the subnet mask is correct. The default-gateway should be the ip address of the vlan 8 interface.

No default gateway assigned to the printer , needs it assigned to the layer 3 interface doing the routing for that subnet.
