PowerConnect 6024 VLAN Routing Configuration

This question is answered

I have a PowerConnect 6024 and Cisco ASA 5510 at the moment.  I am trying to setup a few VLANs on the 6024 that will route between each other and outside of VLAN goes to the Cisco Firewall.  Currently, I can do interVLAN communications but do not know how to insert the configurations for routing between the Dell switch and the Cisco Firewall.

I've setup the switch to

VLAN 2  /192.168.20.1  (trunked LAG port 3,4)    =>  to linksys SRW2024 #1 (multipel VLAN configured)

VLAN 3 / 192.168.30.1  (trunked LAG port 5,6)    =>  to linksys SRW2024 #2 (multipel VLAN configured)

VLAN 4 / 192.168.40.1  (trunked LAG port 7,8)    =>  to linksys SRW2024 #3 (multipel VLAN configured)

Cisco's Inside Interface 192.168.20.250, Outside Interface 194.10.10.10 (fake number)

Current, interVLAN on any of the Linksys works but how do I setup to route to the Internet ?

I have seen that I need to use "Route IP  x.x.x.x x.x.x.x y.y.y.y" but have no clue as to how or what.

  • IP route 192.168.0.0 255.255.0.0 192.168.20.250

    That command should work for your environment, you may need to change the subnet if it does not work.

    I think you could also use this command to route all traffic.

    IP route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.20.250

  • The commands to add the IP routes would look something like this.

    Dell-6024(config)# ip route 10.10.0.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.0.2

    Dell-6024(config)# ip route 10.20.0.0 255.255.255.0 10.20.0.2

    This article does a nice job of taking us through VLAN routing and how it is setup.

    www.dell.com/.../app_note_38.pdf

    Page 183 starts the IP route

    support.dell.com/.../6024CLI4.pdf

    The following example establishes a static route to 172.16.0.0.

    Console (config)# ip route 172.16.0.0 255.255.0.0 131.16.1.1

    I hope this information helps out. Here is also another forum post where someone is attempting to the similar.

  • I've seen the article but do not know how it applies,

    For example, how does "ip route 10.10.0.0 255.255.255.0 10.10.0.2" applies to my situation ?

    ip route 192.168.10.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.10.2 (what is 192.168.10.2 ?)

    What would be the static route look like in my environment ?  is the 172.16.0.0 a VLAN and the 131.16.1.1 the inside interface on the Firewall ?

  • Another issues is where to plug in the firewall uplink ?  I have a 254 VLAN trunked to another switch.   Should I use like port 1 on the Dell to uplink to the Firewall and configure port 1 to be part of untagged 254 VLAN ?

  • IP route 192.168.0.0 255.255.0.0 192.168.20.250

    That command should work for your environment, you may need to change the subnet if it does not work.

  • I thought the above route command didn't work but the issues was the routes wasn't defined in the ASA !
