The Configure, Verify, and Troubleshoot Inter-VLAN Routing module provides you with the instructions and Cisco hardware to develop your hands on skills in configuring inter-VLAN routing using both a separate router for routing, which is also known as “router on a stick” as well as using a layer 3 switch and SVIs. This module includes the following exercises:

  • Configuring and verifying inter-VLAN routing using a “router on a stick” topology
  • Configuring and verifying inter-VLAN routing using a layer 3 switch with SVIs
  • Troubleshooting inter-VLAN routing

Exercise 1 - Configuring Inter-VLAN Routing using a “Router on a Stick” Topology

In this exercise, you will configure a router to route between VLANs enabling IP communication between them.

Exercise 2 - Configuring Inter-VLAN Routing using Switched Virtual Interfaces

In this exercise, you will configure inter-VLAN routing using Switched Virtual Interfaces or SVIs on a Layer 3 switch in order to enable IP communication between VLANs.

The goal of this exercise is to configure the NYCORE1 switch to provide both routing and switching functionality, thus eliminating the need for NYEDGE1 for the purposes of inter-VLAN routing.

The results at the end of the exercise should be exactly the same as those in Exercise 1, so in essence, end users will not notice any difference in network functionality other than the temporary downtime necessary to implement the changes.

In order to make these changes, you will first tear down the trunk link you created and then you will create the appropriate SVIs in the NYCORE1 switch.
