Need help with a basic routing setup

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Greetings,

I'm having some issues with some HP gear that I've got here in a lab environment. While I can hold my own in wireless networking, I must admit that the inner workings of the backbone itself remains beyond my level of comprehension.

Thus I'd like to fix that. smile.gif I have done plenty of work with our HP switches as far as edge switch capability. That would be stuff like making sure the uplink port is tagged to go back to the distribution switch and making sure the right VLANs exist on the right ports for wireless APs.

Here's my setup:

I am on a campus net which is a 10.0.0.0/8. I have a 192.168.1.0/16 in my room. I've got a firewall/router setup as the main gateway. It has an "external" address of 10.39.3.110 and an internal address of 192.168.1.3. I also have an HP Procurve 2626 that has a direct line to the LAN port on the firewall. (It's a PFSense box).

When running a factory default config, clients on the HP switch work just fine. I'm actually typing this out running through that switch and then through the firewall which is NAT'ing correctly, etc.

In anticipation for an actual deployment, I would like to get comfortable with configuring the necessary routing and subnets that we will need.

The issue I'm having:

However, I haven't been able to setup any sort of routing with this switch. What I mean by this is, I've put my client on 192.168.5.5/24 with default gateway 192.168.5.1 and created a VLAN (number 5) on the HP switch. I've untagged the port where the client resides and assigned the HP switch an IP of 192.168.5.1/24 for VLAN 5.

I would now like to create a specific VLAN for the OUT-WAN pipe to reduce broadcast/arp traffic in that link. The idea would be that all outlying VLANs (there will be five or six of them) would be able to access it. However, I have been frustrated by failure.

When the clients and the firewall are connected and have the same VLAN untagged on both of them, it works fine. I am sure to assign the switch an address within the subnet of the firewall (like 192.168.1.10 for example). The firewall can ping the switch and vice versa. The client can ping the switch and vice versa.

Do I need to setup a static route between my 192.168.5.0/24 network and the 192.168.1.0/24 network? I already tried that and it didn't work so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here. frown.gif Would greatly appreciate some pointers! Thanks

The port to WAN should be configured with 802.1q, the port it conencts to on the other switch will need to be as well. In order for these vlans to communicate with eachother ( or simply both back to the WAN ) your router will also need to support 802.1q VLAN trunking.
