Okay.. I feel really dumb asking this questions.. I've ugraded many routers that had no config, but for some reason this simple task on a unconfigured 6500 is not working.
I've configured vlan 1 with ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
I've added g3/1 to vlan 1 (even though I think it is by default)
I've configured my laptop w/ ip address 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0 and connect to g3/1
I can ping and telnet to the router, but I can't ping back or obviously tftp from 192.168.1.2
There are no ACL's configured, or applied.
It's been a long time since I've configured a 6500 series, but not that long.. what simple thing have I forgotten?
