On a CSS11501 i have configured IP-Address, Subnet-Mask and Default-Gateway.

By checking all with the command <sho boot-config> i have this result:

!************************ BOOT CONFIG ************************

ip address

subnet mask

gateway address

primary boot-file sg0710206A

primary boot-type boot-via-disk

Everything looks ok, but i am not able to reach this IF from anywhere outside

of this IP-Subnet.

Any ideas?

the 'ip management route' command is only available in 6.10 for the first generation CSS.

The 11501 does not have this feature yet.

The workaround is to use a router nating the management device ip address to an ip address local to the management port.

Or increase the subnet range on the management port of the CSS and have a router doing proxy arp that will answer will arp request from the CSS.

Do you know if Cisco is planning to enable this feature in a later release?

Yes, this is our plan to support it on the 2nd generation CSS.

However, there is no target date available yet.

You might want to contact your local Cisco representative and ask him to put your name on the list of customer who needs this feature,

The more people on the list the sooner we get the feature.
