Re: use of default gateway on switch

Hi,

Layer 2 switches have to be configured like IP hosts, which are not capable of routing. In the same manner that you assign default gateways to hosts, you need to assign a default gateway to such a L2 switch so that management traffic from the switch can be routed to the gateway router.

Pls do remember to rate posts.

another solution is enable proxy-arp on gateway.

You can use proxy but it security best practice to not use it if you don't need to.
