VLAN Routing - interVLAN works but external Gateway is not accessable from Client


Hi,

I have some problems with routing. I hope you can help me quickly.

Thats my iprouting table

My PC is in the VLAN Internet with following settings

[i]

IP: 192.168.23.11/24

GW: 192.168.23.244

DNS 192.168.100.1

In the network Haus works all fine. Here is Gateway connected. The VLAN inter Routing is aktivates for vlan internet and Haus. Ping from internet vlan to haus vlan works fine. But i can´t reach the gateway 192.168.100.1. I make a default gateway entry in the iproute Table.

When I ping a adress in the net like 8.8.8.8 from the switch it works.

What make I wrong? I will be happy for a fast answer.

Looks like you miss the return route on 192.168.100.1.

Not sure what device that is but you need this route in it....
192.168.23.0/24 via 192.168.100.244
Hi,
it is a simple RedLion UMTS Router for testing. When plug in the vlan44 and set 192.168.100.10/24 gw 1 all works. But when i use the Switch as Gateway, i can´t ping adresses in the internet. I think a entry in routing table on switch is missing.

Nope...... let's break it down ...

If the client 192.168.23.11 in VLAN#43 pings 192.168.100.1 the following happens...
- the packets is forwarded to his gw (=switch 192.168.23.244)
- the switch has a default route (=UMTS router) and tx it to 192.168.100.1
- the UMTS router likes to tx the echo reply and looks into his routing table to find a route to 192.168.23.0/24
- as he has no route to this network he is not able to tx the packet and discards it

You must make the UMTS router aware of this other networks that like to reach the internet by adding static routes.

I'm not sure whether the GUI of the UMTS router allows it or whether your ISP could configure it for you or maybe it's not possible at all.

I've a similar setup@home - instead of UMTS I've a cable modem - because the modem doesn't allow route entries I've connected a firewall behind it to do NAT and the routing.

Little error ....the UMTS router will tx the packet out to the ISP router as that is (normaly) his default gateway - the ISP router will disard the packet as he has no route to the private address range.

I think you idea is not so wrong. But i also have the Problem in VLAN43 (192.168.100.x). And from Switch (X440G2) i can ping the internet and get a response. But when I use X440 as Gateway on the host,

If you ping from the X440 then the switch uses 192.168.100.244 as the source address for the ping = as the router knows the subnet (directly connected) he is able to return the echo reply.

You'd try it with the below commands = set the source IP for the ping

should work = ping with source from VLAN#44
#ping 8.8.8.8 from 192.168.100.244

will not work = ping with source from VLAN#43
#ping 8.8.8.8 from 192.168.23.244

Oh sorry i write the false VLAN ID in the last post. But you are right. Ping from 100 works and from 23 not.

I can make static routes in my ISP Router. I can create a route from a network to gateway. Also i must make a entry from 192.168.23.0 to GW 192.168.23.244 ?

sorry for non-German speakers....

du musst nur routen anlegen fuer netze die ins internet wollen UND hinter dem switch sind = alle ausser vlan#44

die oberfleaeche sieht vermutlich so aehnlich aus....



d.h. das netz plus mask und dann ueber welchen next hop = bei dir dann fuer alle die IP 192.168.100.244 (=switch IP interface im vlan#44)

Wow, cool it works. Big thanks to you!!! I think allways in one direction, but you has right. the other gateway needs also the route!

Have a nice weekend!!!
