if 3Com does their configs like cisco, then you need a trunk port. In Cisco, by default, trunk ports allow all vlans to use it.

Set trunk between switch and router?

by cny2009 In reply to trunk port

Sorry i dont understand. The 3com 4500 is connected to the router, are you means set the trunk between them? Is the Layer 3 switch able to route packets from VLAN2 and VLAN3 to default VLAN1 to get to the router gateway,

yep, create a trunk line

by CG IT In reply to Set trunk between switch ...

if 3Com does what Cisco does, than the vlans should all be able to access the trunk line.

note: after that, the router has to route the packets to the default gateway so... have to setup your route tables to do that for multiple vlan subnets. Hopefully the router you have can do that [or layer 3 switch].

Intervlan routing is simply having the route route packets between vlans, not to the default gateway.
