Traffic between the Metasys devices within a VLAN is delivered using Layer 2 switching between the physical ports assigned to the VLAN. However, in cases where traffic must be sent between VLANs (for example, for communication between the network engine s if they are in different VLANs and between the network engine s and the Metasys server ), the traffic must be delivered through inter-VLAN routing. For the Segmented network architecture, a default route must be defined on each switch to route traffic from the Metasys VLANs to the IT network. The default route on the switch must point to an IP address in the IT network. For the Isolated network architecture, a default route must be defined on the BAS aggregation switch to route traffic to the firewall.

Table 1. Configuring IP routes on a Cisco managed switch

Configuration step

Cisco IOS CLI command

1

Enter global configuration mode.

Switch# configure terminal

2

Enable IP routing.

Switch(config)# ip routing

3

Add a default route. In this example, all IP packets that are not destined for the local VLAN are routed to IP address 192.68.5.1 in the IT network.

Switch(config)# ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.68.5.1

4

Exit global configuration mode.

Switch(config)# exit
