i am having a problem with cat2950 vlan config and i would appreciate your help please.
when i issue no shut for vlan 20 that place vlan 50 in shutdown
any idea why? please let me know if you need more details.
Presumably you are talking about the L3 vlan interface ie.
int vlan 20
int vlan 50
The reason this is happening is because the 2950 is a L2 switch so you can only have 1 L3 vlan interface active at any one time. You can have multiple L2 vlans ie.
"sh vlan" will show the L2 vlans
but you can only have one active L3 vlan interface.
If you want to have multiple L3 vlan interfaces active and route between them you need a L3 capable switch ie.
Unfortunately, the 2940/2950 series switches will support only one (1) active VLAN Management interface active. It will allow normal VLAN traffic to the second or succeeding VLANs. For example, say you have two VLANs, 20 and 50. Both of them have an IP address. Aside from VLAN 1, only one of either 20 or 50 can remain up/up and the other will be down/down but the switch can pass traffic to both 20 and 50.
Does this make any sense?
And here is the documentation mentioning this:
The Catalyst 2950 switch supports only one management VLAN. You can use this global configuration command to change it:
cluster management-vlan vlan-id
This command communicates the management VLAN when the switch is configured for clustering.
i was hoping that you can take a look at the switch config
i still have the data and voice vlan but from what i understand the cat2950 switches will support only one (1) active VLAN Management interface active. It will allow normal VLAN traffic to the second or succeeding VLANs. For example, say you have two VLANs, 20 and 50. Both of them have an IP address. Aside from VLAN 1, only one of either 20 or 50 can remain up/up and the other will be down/down but the switch can pass traffic to both 20 and 50.
my pc is connected to port 17 on the switch and when i do a :
ping 172.20.1.254 (router)
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 172.20.1.254, timeout is 2 seconds:
Success rate is 0 percent (0/5)
from the pc ping 172.20.1.254 (router) i get all 4 replies back.
sh ip int brief (only shown the up/up)
Interface IP-Address OK? Method Status Protocol
Vlan1 unassigned YES manual administratively down down
Vlan20 192.168.2.253 YES manual administratively down down
Vlan50 172.20.1.253 YES manual up up
FastEthernet0/17 unassigned YES unset up up
GigabitEthernet0/1 unassigned YES unset up up
you need to disable the windows firewall on your pc.
Some A/V softwares also have a FW component like symantec.
Most of them block icmp.
As you can ping from the pc to the router, you have a FW issue on the PC.
