Meraki Switch not passing traffic

Good Day,

I am currently working on a physical test DMZ - and have run into an issue with our meraki 8 port switch.

Firewall -> meraki -> server

There seems to be a communication break at the meraki - I can ping 8.8.8.8 from the meraki, and ping the server - but cannot ping outside from the server.

 

 

It's my thought that this model MS220-8P - does not support adding a 0.0.0.0 route to the firewall - but figured I would check the forums.

Kind of a big deal

Looking at the MS220-8P I am currently using, I would observe:

  • the uplink (port 10 in this case) only passes the 7 VLANs in use.
  • the switch gets its IP from the Management VLAN (which is one of the 7 allowed)
  • there are no default or native VLANs (it is nailed down)
  • for specific cases I use VLAN 101, which does not exist, to allow a port to be configured (all are currently disabled)
  • only access port have a VLAN as opposed to allowing a number of VLANs

Without my required paranoid switch configuration requirement, I found the switch, once adopted, works without any configuration. All ports are trunk and all VLANs are permitted, by default.

Re: Meraki Switch not passing traffic

ms220 is a layer2 switch. are both ports in the same vlan? 

 

a meraki ping on the "client page" is actually an arp.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Meraki Switch not passing traffic

The MS220 series is not a Layer 3 switch so it will not do routing for you.

Thanks - I defaulted it to dumb, and it's doing what I want now.  Good case of KISS.
