6500 MSFC no ip routing command


I used to "ip routing" command in order to enable inter-vlan routing, for example with 3750 cisco.

I have a 6503 cisco with SUP720 MSFC3.

I was able to create some vlans but I can not configure inter-vlan routing.

sw#conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.

swsur(config)#ip routing


% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.


"ip routing" command doesn't work and effectively I can not ping from network A to network B

and vice versa

May you help me ?

Many Thanks

6500 MSFC no ip routing command


Are you trying to enable IP routing on the 6500? if yes, IP routing is enabled by default.

Can you post the output of  ip routing ?


Switch(config)#ip routing ?

  protocol  IP routing protocol


Switch(config)#ip routing



6500 MSFC no ip routing command

As  Reza said it's on by default.  I believe you cannot even turn it off on the 6500's .  If you want just l2 then you just do not create a SVI for the vlan .

6500 MSFC no ip routing command


As you can see above, the "ip routing" command doesn't exit on this 6500 model (Sup720 MSFC3)

sw(config)#ip routing ?

% Unrecognized command

As "Glen Grant" said, it's on by default and we cannot turn it off.

I have the following command :

swr#show ip protocols

*** IP Routing is NSF aware ***

I'm looking for why I cannot ping from host of vlan 300 to host of vlan 200

sw#show ip route

Gateway of last resort is W.X.Y.254 to network

    W.X.Y.0.0/27 is subnetted, 1 subnets

C  W.X.Y.Z is directly connected, Vlan 100 is subnetted, 2 subnets

C is directly connected, Vlan 200

C is directly connected, Vlan 300

S* [1/0] via W.X.Y.254

All vlan are EtherSVI and up as the following example :

sw#show int vlan 100

Vlan100 is up, line protocol is up

Hardware is EtherSVI,
