I am using a layer 2 switch (2950) & it had few Vlans: now its not connected to network. I connected my laptop on its default vlan. From laptop i can ping the switch but not from switch.
I am running tftp server on my laptop, so unless i can reach from switch to laptop i cant put the files there.
From switch i need to run tftp command to get the file from laptop...
Switch cannot ping laptop, thats the problem.. When u can ping from laptop to switch, laptop knows how to get to switch and come back.. why it doesnt work from switch? If it would have been an inter vlan communication, yes.. but in this case, both are on same Vlan. and default G/W set for switch is also in same Vlan..
