I am planning to use Catalyst 3550-SMI-24 to separate net_1 (192.168.1.x/24) & net_2 (192.168.2.x/24). With following assignment:
1. port 1-23 for net_1 & port 24 for net_2. Gateway will be positioned in net_1, so net_1 & net_2 users must pass through net_1 to the router/internet.
2. I have tried to enable L3 switching on port 24, set it up as gateway for net_2 users. And also I have tried VLAN (L2) for this port too.
Although net_1 & net_2 are able to ping each other, messaging application like ipmsg (even I have set broadcast setting to both networks broadcast addresses)can not communicate between them. Client on net_2 seems like to be isolated from net_1. Do I need to enable any features (like bridging, etc)?
Any ideas and helps will be greatly appreciated.
