Dear,

      [strong] I have made a lan by network simulator. In this network I have used 5 2960(layer 2) switches and Three 3560(layer 3) switches as a access layer switch. In layer 2 switches I have put the default-gateway so I can easily telnet access to layer 2 switches. But In layer 3 switches when I'm trying to put the default gateway It's not taking this command, So I can't telnet access to layer 3 switches.Can anybody give me the solution?[/strong]

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What ever layer 2 or 3 switches, there must have same way to assign the IP address to VLAN1 but in the case of different network you must assign the <b>gateway IP address</b> to get the access from the outside like “ip default-gateway xxxx”

    Check weither ip routing is enabled in your layer 3 switch if so then disable and use the command ip default-gateway to configure the gateway.

    Remember--- when using Layer 3 devices do not use the default gateway command... use your default route to the next Layer 3 device in your network. example: ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.50.100.1 This way your L3 device can get to it's gateway (next hop). And in doing so you will be able to manage the L3 Switch.
