Web-based LAN management is Down

I have four 2924XL switches at a given site in a diffreent subnet which will not respond to ping, and cannot be web-mainaged except when I'm onsite in that subnet, or directly connected to the switch.

While onsite I can manage them, via the console. And I can also Telnet to them from my remote subnet.

I can ping and web-manage other switches in that subnet from my subnet.

Hi,

are you sure "ip default-gateway" is configured correctly on those 2924s?

Re: Web-based LAN management is Down

You nailed it, Milan. As it turns out, the former admin had put the IP address of a server in (not multihomed) as the gateway on the switches I could not get to. I have found that on other switches on a different subnet as well. Any ideas why one would set up a switch that way?

Re: Web-based LAN management is Down

The only reason I can imagine is that he was not able to ping the server and (maybe not understanding completely that "IP deafult gateway" is not used for user traffic) configured IP default gateway equal the target server address to be 100% sure the switch would send IP data to the server.

Or it might have been the address of his management station and he tried to reach it from the switch. Who knows?

Regards,

Milan
