On our 4510 switch we have multiple VLANs. Two of the VLANs have IP addresses assigned to the VLAN interface. I assumed that no inter-VLAN communication would take place until I used the 'ip routing' command. That's not the case though. I do have communications between the two VLANs without this statement in place. We are using static routes but it does build the route to the directly connected interface. We also do not have a default route set on the switch.
From the documentation that I have read, you would need to enable 'ip routing' to route between VLANs but this doesn't seem to be the case.
Can someone clarify why this is happening?
Your ip routing is enable ;)
As already said , the ip routing is on by default and depending on the equipement , you not see the ligne no ip routing or ip routing.
