Why this "ping" response?

Unanswered Question
May 19th, 2009

I am trying to ping an address from a 3560G switch but I am getting a strange response below. Is this imagine not capable of pinging? Strange that it is "IPservices"...

"flash:c3560-ipservices-mz.122-35.SE5/c3560-ipservices-mz.122-35.SE5.bin"

gw1#ping ip ?

WORD Ping destination address or hostname

<cr>

gw1#ping ip 192.168.10.33

% Unrecognized host or address, or protocol not running.

gw1#ping ip ?

WORD Ping destination address or hostname

<cr>

gw1#ping ip 192.168.10.65

% Unrecognized host or address, or protocol not running.

I have this problem too.

I did that too, but instead of returning "time out", it states that protocol may not be running. I never saw this before, just wondering.

switch1#show ip default-gateway

192.168.10.94

switch1#ping 192.168.10.94

% Unrecognized host or address, or protocol not running.

Never mind. Now I am getting the correct ping time out issue.

Thanks.

Hello Marlon,

I guess you have:

no ip routing

if you are using an ip default-gateway

but I agree that this shouldn't prevent the use of ping command

if you enable ip routing you need a default route instead of ip default-gateway:

ip routing

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.10.94

and you need an ip address in the same subnet as next-hop / ip default-gateway.

Hope to help

Giuseppe

Do you have an ip address assigned to the switch vlan that your pinging from?

If you do not have a ip address on your switch this will definitely be the issue as there is no returning route.

hth, please rate if so

Regards,

Justin

Please use below command for configuring DNS.

Ip domain lookup

If you default gateway is 192.168.10.1/24 or 192.168.10.254/24, the ip of switch is anyone between 192.168.10.2 to 192.168.10.253

 

example

config t
interface vlan 1
ip add 192.168.10.2 255.255.255.0
exit
