  • not routing simple setup

    Hi guys, probably a very easy question to answer but I have virtual setup as follows;


    the interface on s0 is (which is a vlan, but I have not set this as a trunk)

    R1 connected to S0 is

    R1 int connected to R2 is
    R2 int connected back to R1 is

    I can ping from the pc

    to the R1 intface 10.1 but I cannot ping the network

    here is the R1 config; is subnetted, 1 subnets
    C is directly connected, GigabitEthernet1/0
    C is directly connected, GigabitEthernet2/0
    S [1/0] via
    S* [1/0] via

    I have set a default route out onto the 10.2 interface (next hop)

    but no idea why I cannot ping from pc onto R1 interface and therefore R2.
    Please ignore from R2 onwards as I have not finished this setup and therefore no point doing so untill I can ping pc----> R1 and R2.

    please help

    I know it is something probably simple!!!

    Does R2 have a route back to your Lan subnet? Remember routing is bi-directional.

    Can you ping between R1 and R2 from both the subnet and the subnet?

      I can ping from R2 to the interface but not the 10.251 (switch)
      and yes I can ping the network as these are physically connected

      here is the sh ip route for R2

      Gateway of last resort is not set is subnetted, 1 subnets
      S [1/0] via
      C is directly connected, GigabitEthernet3/0
      C is directly connected, Serial2/0

      attached is a network diagram.

        Is switch 0 a Layer 2 switch? If so that vlan interface is just used for remotely managing the switch. If its a layer 2 switch your default gateway for your pc should be a L3 interface, mainly the interace on R1. You can also set the ip default-gateway on Switch 0 to as well.

          cheers for that works fine now, yes you are correct
          i changed the GW from the switch to that of the R1 interface for that network and now it can route successfully.
