Route for a single IP

Hi!

We have one core switch and some access switches with vlans. The default gateway on the core switch is our firewall. We have connected a device to the core switch. The device has no default gateway for LAN Interface. We are able to ping this device from the core switch but not from access switches. What is required to be able to connect to this device from access switches. This device is not connected to our firewall.

Any Suggestions?

Thanks.

Do you simply not have the option of putting a defaut gateway in the device? If not, the only thing you'd be able to do is put it in the same subnet as other devices. The default gateway isn't used if it's trying to talk to something on its own subnet, but if it tries to go out of that subnet, then it must use a default gateway.

No there is no place to enter default gateway. It is also very difficult to connect it to the switch having the same subnet due to internet modem location which is also connected to this device directly on its WAN interface.

Thanks.

Do you have the option of adding a static route? If so, you could try to add 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 .

The only solution that isn't a "dirty hack" is to configure the device with a default-gateway. If you can't do that, using Proxy-Arp could be a solution, but one that really has nothing to do in a network of the 21st century.
