Content Inside: How To Configure InterVLAN Routing on Layer 3 Switches Document ID: 41860 Introduction Prerequisites Requirements Components Used Conventions Configure InterVLAN Routing Task Step-by-Step Instructions Verify Troubleshoot Troubleshooting Procedure NetPro Discussion Forums - Featured Conversations Related Information Introduction VLANs divide broadcast domains in a LAN environment. Whenever hosts in one VLAN need to communicate with hosts in another VLAN, the traffic must be routed between them. This is known as inter-VLAN routing. On Catalyst switches it is accomplished by creating Layer 3 interfaces (Switch virtual interfaces (SVI) ). This document provides the configuration and troubleshooting steps applicable to this capability. Note: This document uses a Catalyst 3550 as an example. However, the concepts can also be applied to other Layer 3 switches that run Cisco IOS« (for example, Catalyst 3560, 3750, Catalyst 4500/4000 Series with Sup II+ or later, or Catalyst 6500/6000 Series that run Cisco IOS System software). Prerequisites Requirements Catalyst switch models 3560, 3750, Catalyst 4500/4000 Series with Sup II+ or later, or Catalyst 6500/6000 Series that run Cisco IOS system software support basic InterVLAN routing features in all their supported software versions. Before you attempt this configuration on a 3550 series switch, ensure that you meet these prerequisites: InterVLAN routing on the Catalyst 3550 has certain software requirements to support interVLAN Ě routing on the switch. See this table to determine whether your switch can support interVLAN routing. InterVLAN Image Type and Version Routing Capability Enhanced Multilayer Image (EMI) - All Versions Yes
