Vlans left out of the loop?

So say i have 4 vlans in a network, 3 of the four work perfectly, and the last one works as well except the last server on the vlan will not talk outside of the vlan. say its ip is plain and simple, all the other servers work correctly, and i missing a sub net? bad ip address? i can talk more in depth if someone is willing to talk.


Re: Vlans left out of the loop?

Sounds from your description that only one host the 244 cannot talk to anything even from hosts within its own subnet?

is the server on the right vlan for the network? can ping its default gateway?

Re: Vlans left out of the loop?

Yes its on the right vlan, checking the pinging stuff now, i assumed my boss had, my bad, im going to check now will edit with results.


It can ping all other computers in its subnet

It can ping its gateway and the gateway of last resort

It cannot ping anything else

It is on the correct vlan and its ip is actually


Re: Vlans left out of the loop?

So let me understand this corerctly.

from you can ping its DG as well as hosts from withing subnet

does any other hosts from subnet can reach all other adjacent subnets outside ?

Re: Vlans left out of the loop?

Every other host in the subnet works perfectly, it is the only one thats have trouble, its the right port ive checked everything several times, either im missing something and need a shove in the right direction or it should work and im still missing something

Re: Vlans left out of the loop?


What type of switch is the server connected? is it simply L2 switch or L3 switch.

It could be few things , could you ensure if any access list at the device where all other subnets are being routed from including the is not blocking this particular IP from communicating to other subnets.

is the switchport where this server connect to a L2 switch port free on any other L2 configurations , to be coompletely sure is pure L2 switchport issue " switchport host " if IOS , set port host mod/port in CATOS under the port interface where server connects, this will remove any other modes that perhaps may have been configured before on the port.

If still no joy have you tried connecting server to a different port on the switch.
