played with them a little bit at work, what did you want to know
you wont be able to ping it m8,
from what i gather from what you said.
VLANs need to be on their own subnet. so you have 2 different subnet with their oen ip ranges and masks.
Switches only operate at layer 2, if you wanted to network between the VLANS (networks) you would require a layer 3 device. i.e a router. and a routing protocol turnt on if it a cisco router.
have a look on cisco's site for router on a stick setup.
hope that helps.
thanks for that, but was told the Cisco switch/router on the main backbone of the network is connects to (which is a layer 3) is set up so I should be able to ping to it
worse case I can setup a desktop with 2 networks cards one connected to main backbone and the other to the switch on the back of the Blade chassis and run routing on it via Linux
kk didnt know you had router on there.
see when you ping, what error you getting, timeout or destination unreachable?
is switch connected directly to the router or via other switche or switches? does it have redundancy built in, if so do you have spanning tree properly enabled, with proper root bridge etc?
