Layer 3 Switch not routing (Problem)

Post by Vreo » Fri Mar 15, 2019 5:09 pm

Hi all,

I have just set up routing one lan to lan site with Layer 3 Swith with partial success. Some someone can assist me please!

Here is my config.

Network 1 (Server):
Bridged local LAN with this Hub1.

Network 2 (Bridge Client):
Connects tu Server to Hub2.
Bridged local LAN with this Hub2

Layer 3 Switch. Hub1 Hub2

I can see on each IP tables the ips of respective internal network plus the IP of the Layer 3 Switch.

From both, the server ( and the bridge client ( I can ping the virtual interface of the Layer 3 Switch and also, but I can't ping any other PC from any side...

I have no added any route to the layer 3, but I added routes via command line (Windows CMD) to:
route add mask
route add mask

route add mask
route add mask

If I add to any other PC from eather site the route of the opposite site, the same happens, I can ping both virtual interfaces layer 3 switch IPs, but not any internal.

Do I have to turn on any other setting on Windows or softethernet server or bridge client?

On openVPN I know I would have to turn on the Windows Service "Routing and Remote Access", but I tried that also with no success.

I only have open port 5555 of the server, and the bridge and cascade connection seems is established.

I followed carefully this guide ... P_Routing) with no success.

Please let me know if this is the correct Forum.

Please add a route to the virtual L3 router for each client PC.
