Hello everyone

Currently in charge of managing an old network.

My equipment is Switch Extreme Summit X250e.

Version OS :

Primary ver:
Secondary ver:
Config Selected:  primary.cfg
Config Booted:    primary.cfg
primary.cfg       Created by ExtremeXOS version

I want to download new configurations(.xsf) to swich with TFTP 

My PC is connected via the console port (front panel) with teraterm  + MTMG network jack (back panel).

The network conf of my PC is as follows:

IPv4. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .: (preferred)
Subnet Mask. . . . . . . .
Default Gateway. . . . . . . . .:


The Switch Network Conf is as follows:

ADMIN         25   /16  ----------------- ANY    0 /2   VR-Default
DATA           10   --------------------------------------------- ANY    0 /26  VR-Default
Default         1    --------------------------------------------- ANY    0 /0   VR-Default
Mgmt           4095    /24  ----------------- ANY    1 /1   VR-Mgmt
VOIP            100  ------------------------------------------ ANY    0 /26  VR-Default


I apply the procedures found on this site but

Ping pc => Switch = OK
Ping Switch => PC = Nok 

Switch summit # ping
Ping(ICMP) 4 packets, 8 data bytes, interval 1 second(s).
Packet transmit error; Destination unreachable



they are the minimum configuration for swsitch and PC to communicate??
Is there a routing table to configure? if so how to configure it with the mgmt port?

I’ve been looking for solutions, but nothing works.

thank you in advance for your answers

Hi Oliv,

In XOS, the command to add a Default Gateway for the Management VR is as following:

configure iproute add default <your default gateway> vr “VR-Mgmt”

You don’t need to configure a default-gateway for a directly connected device.

can you try the following command

ping vr vr-mgmt

HI I try  :thinking:

ping vr vr-mgmt

and the result =  

Switch summit # ping vr vr-mgmt
Ping(ICMP) 4 packets, 8 data bytes, interval 1 second(s).
16 bytes from icmp_seq=0 ttl=128 time=0.944 ms
16 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=128 time=1.894 ms


It s OK !!!  Thank you very much. !! 

My mission now it s download the .xsf

I applied the TFTP procedure to backup and restore the switch summit = it works perfectly.
This is on your advice.  :pray:
