I have two 3750 switches in a stack that does not have a default-gateway statement yet when I telnet to that stack, I can ping a device that is on a different subnet. The switches are L2 only and are uplinked to two distribution layer 6509 routers that are running GLBP between them.
Isn't the default-gateway command necessary for communications to subnets other than what the stack has locally? I've only had one cup of coffee this morning and maybe that's where the problem is.
