Can we simulate HSRP configuration using 1x2600 & 1x3560

Unanswered Question


I was just wondering whether we can simulate HSRP failover by using one 2600 router and one 3560 switch where i have 2 FE interfaces at 2600?

I have connected the 2 FE interfaces from 2600 to 3560 switches with 2 routed ports configured respectively and hook up a laptop to 3560 port and did a continuous ping to 2600. However, I did not see the failover when i manually shutdown one interface at the 2600 FE.

Anyways that i can simulate it?


I have this problem too.

In order to have HSRP running, both HSRP devices must be on the same LAN.

Can you provide configs along with the show stand output from both devices?



Thanks!! I will provide the config later on. Meantime, I have tried to configure the 2 FE interface in 2600 with same LAN IP range but failed to do so. ie. FE0/0 IP, FE0/1 IP Hence, I changed the FE0/1 IP to The routed ports are configured as follows:

FA0/1: connected to FE0/0

FA0/2: connected to FE0/1

My laptop IP is in VLAN10 on 3560.

My ping is to IP) to 2600.

So I think my configurations won't work now since the interfaces are on different segment. Anyway to configure 2600 FE0/0-1 with same segment?

try configuring one of the ports on your router and a vlan interface on a switch as an hsrp pair.

HSRP configuration requires you to share this task within (2) physical devices.

You can configure HSRP between the 2600 Router and the 3560 switch.

You already have a Vlan10 on the 3560. I recommend changing the IP on one of the interfaces in the 2600 router to be on that Vlan. Configure the switchport for access-vlan 10, then configure HSRP between Vlan10 Layer3 interface in the switch and the fastethernet in the router connected to that Vlan.




You mean I should configure as follows:

FE0/0 IP

FE0/1 IP

Int Fa0/1

Description Connect to FE0/0

no switchport

ip addr

Int Fa0/2

Description Connect to FE0/1

switchport access vlan 10

switchport mode access

Int Vlan10

ip addr

Standby 1 IP

Standby 1 preempt

My laptop IP is in VLAN10 connected to 3560.

I ping to IP) to 2600.

Is it correct?

Yes, that should do it.

Once you are done with that configuration, please post the show stand for verification.
