Needing a little help here please.  We have an environment with no router, but we do have a layer 3 switch.  Please refer to the diagram; we have a server with IP address connected to Ethernet port 1 of the Brocade Ruckus ICX 7150 switch.  We have a fiber link on port 9 that goes out to a layer 2 switch.  On port 9 we have virtual interfaces for vlan 51 at and vlan 351 at  From the Brocade Ruckus we can ping the Camera at, so we are routing traffic as intended from the Brocade through the layer 2 switch (that has tagging) to the camera at  What we need to do is have the server connect from its IP address of to the camera at  What configuration method would work best to achieve this goal?

Nope, this is a misnomer.

No static route should be needed giving the diagram above because there is only one (1) layer-3 device doing any routing, and this device would automatically add to its routing table the directly-connected routes for any IPs assigned to its interfaces - typically VRIs (Virtual Router Interfaces), which are your "interface ve xxx".  Other vendors call these SVIs (Software Virtual Interfaces), and those are typically "interface vlan xxx."  It is the same concept though.

Regardless, as a general rule of thumb once you place an IP address with its Mask on an interface, that entire subnet will show up in the routing-table as a directly-connected route meaning that layer-3 device owns that subnet.

A static-route would be to tell another layer-3 device that doesn't have that subnet or know how to get to that subnet to get to that subnet via a next-hop IP or via one of its interfaces.

In this case with this diagram, the routing table will look something like this if Op assigns to ve 192, and places at least one actual interface that is UP into that VLAN, so the VE changes its state to up/up (required to get the route inserted):

SSH@OPsICX7150#sh ip route
Total number of IP routes: 1
Type Codes - B:BGP D:Connected O:OSPF R:RIP S:Static; Cost - Dist/Metric
BGP  Codes - i:iBGP e:eBGP
OSPF Codes - i:Inter Area 1:External Type 1 2:External Type 2
        Destination        Gateway         Port          Cost          Type Uptime
1  DIRECT          ve 192         0/0           D    1d6h

There would be other  routing table entries for subnets directly-connected on ve 52, and ve 351, too.


If you are referring to the server needing a static route, while that's true, it will already have a default route, which is used by the OS to get to any network which is not in the 192.168.1.x network the server is assigned.  Any other IP would cause the server to forward those packets to its default-gateway, which if the config tweaks I suggested are made would be, and the server would find that being its subnet is within the same subnet as the default-gateway.  That is to say the server is on the same layer-2 subnet as the default-gateway.  In reality, it is just plugged into interface 1/1/1

In Windows, you can do a c:\>print route if you really want from a cmd prompt.

You would be looking for something like this
print route
Unable to initialize device PRN

C:\Users\Netwizz>route print
Interface List

IPv4 Route Table
Active Routes:
Network Destination        Netmask          Gateway       Interface  Metric

This is what our sh ip route looks like;

01    DIRECT          ve 51         0/0           D    1h46m

02    DIRECT          ve 351        0/0           D    1h46m

03     DIRECT          ve 192        0/0           D    12m52s

04    DIRECT          e mgmt1       0/0           D    2h2m

just to clarify, I mentioned the static route in the case that the server was already using a different router.

I know he said he didn't have one, but sometimes things are omitted.

All good, no router here.  I know it's confusing.  I'm trying.  If we had a router, we'd be done last week.  lol

With all that is added, from the server we can ping on the ve.  From the Layer 3 switch Brocade switch however, we cannot ping the server at  Any ideas?

No reply from remote host.

It's most strange as the server shows up in arp:

Switch#sh arp
