Cisco 3560 L2 or L3?

Is there a simple way to really verify that the cisco 3560 is a layer 2 or layer 3 switch? or is it actually dependent upon the ios image that it's running?

Switch model number is WS-C3560-48PS-S

Thanks.

3560 is L2/L3 switch

if you do not enable ip routing the switch will operate as L2

switch

use this command to make it L3

ip routing

to make only L2

no ip routing

good luck

I would try and setup 2 gateways, connect 2 hosts and see if they can ping eachother;

example:

Int vlan 100

ip adress 10.10.10.1 255.255.255.0

no shut

conf t

int gi 0/1

switchport mode access

switchport access vlan 100

no shut

connect host 1 to gi 0/1

repeat for 2nd host

Re: Cisco 3560 L2 or L3?

Hi,

 

i am trying to configure 2 vlan with different network

 

vlan10 - 192.168.10.1/24

vlan50 - 192.168.50.1/24

 

port assigned to vlan10 is fa0/1-4 and fa0/5-8 for vlan50

 

client ips are

192.168.10.11-14 /24 for vlan10 with gateway 192.168.10.1

192.168.50.11-14 /24 for vlan 50 with gateway 192.168.50.1

 

however they cant reach each other, i am trying Layer3 switching and i am did the ip routing as what you advise but did not work..

 

please advise if i did wrong.. thanks and advance.!!
