I am running into some configuration issues when setting up some basic layer3 vlan routing, and im sure multiple ways exist to handle this..


To make it simple, lets say i have only 2 vlans that i want to talk on the same switch (7060sx2)


interface vlan 10 –

applied to port 10

interface vlan 20 –

applied to port 20


What is the cleanest way to handle this?

i simply would like packets to flow from this network to the bidirectionally.

Perhaps using a sub-interface attached to one of the interface eth 10 or 20 be recommended?

I do have a 2nd switch that i plan to use ospf between, can i use a routed port on it for now?

-if this question needs more clarification i will be glad to add more info.   thankyou

Hi Brad,

Thanks for reaching out.

You can create vlan 10,20 and SVI's for Vlan 10,20 and that should be enough to communicate between vlans on the same device.

Also ports where hosts are connected for vlan 10 and 20 should be made part of vlan10 and 20 respectively either access or trunk (Generally access port) in case if you would like to ping between host to host to test this out.


switch(conf)#vlan 10,20                                      -->create vlans

switch(config-vlan-10,20)#interface Vlan10   -->create SVI's
switch(config-if-Vl10)#ip address

switch(config-if-Vl20)#interface Vlan20

switch(config-if-Vl20)#ip address


For OSPF, we can configure OSPF between SVIs (IP address of same vlan should be different on both switches) or we can assign L3 IP address between both the connected ports and run OSPF on top of it.

Please refer to the below OSPF manual for more info regarding configs:
