Hi Guys i would like to access the switches via the web, i have 5 vlans and moved the management vlan to VLAN 10.
VLANS 1-4 are routable and function correctly.
I have given the switch an address of 172.31.1.2 and had to set the default gateway of 172.31.1.1 although that default gateway does not exist.
I cannot add it to interface VLAN 10 as this is the management and not routable, so this obviously means i cannot ping it let alone access it via web.
How can i gain access to the switch via the web interface if i cant assign a default gateway?
The default gateway is optional. You would only need that if connecting from another network.
console(config)# interface vlan 10
console(config-if)# ip address 172.31.1.2 /16
console(config)# ip default-gateway 172.31.1.1
What is the actual switch model that you are configuring? If you do not set up a default gateway are you able to access the switch on IP 172.31.1.2 from a client on that network?
Is there a router/switch upstream that this switch is connected? That would be the default gateway. You would need a physical gateway the is pingable.
Hope this helps,
Please keep us updated.
