Routing vlan traffic out from SGE2000P

We have one SGE2000P switch that we are testing in Layer 3. We have a very simple configuration with some vlans that we want to route to our corporate network, but I want to test if there is actually traffic coming out from the up-link port first.

1- Created the vlans:

VLAN1: /16 (native)

VLAN10: /24

VLAN20: /24

2- Assigned ports to VLans:

Port g3 is in Vlan 10

Port g22 is in Vlan 20

Port g1 is by default on Vlan 1 (native)

3 - Connected PCs to Vlans:

PC connected at g3 has Vlan 10 IP as gateway (

PC connected at g22 has Vlan 20 IP as gateway (

4 - Looks like intervlan routing is working 'cause both PCs can ping each other.

5 - I added a default route to another testing machine's IP, ie, /0 connected to port g1, but the ping doesn't work.

Now the questions:

1 - How can I test if there is traffic being routed to port g1 from the vlans ???

2 - What else do I need to add in the switch config to take traffic out from the vlans to Port g1 ???

For reference, the sw's running-config:

console# show running-config

vlan database

vlan 10,20


interface ethernet g3

switchport access vlan 10


interface ethernet g22

switchport access vlan 20


interface vlan 1

ip address          


interface vlan 10

ip address


interface vlan 20

ip address


ip route 


Any help / comment is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,



Routing vlan traffic out from SGE2000P

Hello Jose,

In order for a vlan to be active, you will have to have something connected to a port on that vlan. In this case you should be able to add a PC to port g1 and set it to be with gateway of

If you are looking to add a router in place as the main way out to the internet, you will:

have to have the router IP be

add a static route in the router for each subnet pointing back to

With the ip route already in there for to, you should be able to get online.
