Hi all,

I hope someone can help me. I’m trying to get two 3COM 5500 to talk to either other. I’m having problems with the routing between the 2.

SW1- IP of – 10.10.1.1/24
SW2- IP of – 10 .12.1.1/24

Switches internally work great, but I can’t get them to talk to each other. They are connected through fabric ports (SFP)

any help would be appreciated.

That's what I tried to follow with no luck,

[Test Switch 10.10A]ip route-static 10.12.1.1 255.255.255.0 10.10.1.1 -

[Test Switch 10.12B]ip route-static 10.10.1.1 255.255.255.0 10.12.1.1 -

Duplicate gateway or interface...

I'm clearly missing something.

The gateway depicts the ip. It will only ever be either 255 or 0. So a gateway of 255.255.255.0 will mean that the only change in the ip is where the 0 lies. So the first 3 sets of your ip should always be the same, then the only digits that change in this case is the last quartlet.

basst42 did you read page 423?

3Create the XRN Distributed Fabric as follows:
■Switch 5500 Family — via the two SFP ports (27/28 or 51/52 depending on type of Switch), however, before connecting up, enable the Fabric ports on the Switch units using the instructions in the “Creating an XRN Distributed Fabric” Chapter in the Getting Started Guide that accompanies your Switch.

if you look at page 147 the manual gives you an example of routing between two switches.
