I am able to telnet into a switch, but I cannot ping it.

Hi.  I am having an issue where I am able to Telent into my stacked switch, but not ping it.  I am puzzled.  Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening?

Well, without any details

Well, without any details anything would be a guess ;)

What type of switch?

Are you telneting from the same subnet as the switch admin interface?

A switch could have an ACL preventing ping and if you are routing to the switch some layer 3 device between you and the switch could prevent ping as well.

If you are not on the same subnet you may also be missing a return route from the switch, but if that was the case I suppose telnet would not work either.

I guess some details would help... :)

So I have 7 stacked Cisco SG500-x switches stacked via fiber.  The stack is setup into layer 3 mode.  I can pretty much ping everything else in my network.  I can't ping any of the VLANs in the switch either. 

I have my PC plugged in directly to port 12 right now.

I'm not sure about the switch admin interface, but i'll look into that.

We are on the same subnet.

It's used for video switching, and other then not being able to ping it everything seems to be working fine.

My running config is as followed (I removed some of it, because it follows a pretty simple pattern).

It seems in port 12 you will

It seems in port 12 you will have an IP in the range of 10.50.0.0/16 and then you telnet, but can't ping to what address?  Can you confirm the IP, subnet and gateway on your PC you are telneting from?

So the IP address of my PC

So the IP address of my PC is

Ethernet adapter SIM:

   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 10.50.20.20
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.50.1.254

 

The IP Address i'm trying to ping is:

interface vlan 5
 name SIM
 ip address 10.50.1.254 255.255.0.0

So yeah, we're in the same subnet.

You are indeed on the same

You are indeed on the same subnet.  I think you also said you can ping other things so it rules out a software firewall on your PC?

So now we are both puzzled.

Maybe time to run wireshark if you are really interested to solve this?

Yeah, i've tried that too.

Yeah, i've tried that too.  Looks like it's sending out the ICMP requests, nothing is being returned though.  Completely puzzled.

My initial though was maybe Cisco locked down ICMP for some type of security thing, but I can't find any settings that look like it would be blocking pings.

Hopefully at the end of the day it's just something silly, but who knows.

Thanks for helping!

Hi Mike, I would recommend

Hi Mike,

 

I would recommend you to upgrade firmware and boot code first. It might save your time a bit.

it works now.

I also like to know the reason behind the issue.

It occurs my SG300, SG500 series switches too.
