I need to use a 4006 switch as my default gateway and would like your advice on what would be a better practice:
- Use the IP that is already on VLAN1:
int vlan1 ip address x.x.x.x x.x.x.x
- Configure one of the interfaces as Physical Layer 3, put IP on it, and use it as a DG.
int fa3/35 no switchport ip address x.x.x.x x.x.x.x
If #2 would be the better choice, which interface would normally be the one to pick for that purpose? Example: fa1/13 is connected to the inside port of my PIX and traffic goes out to the internet from there. Is fa1/13 the one i need..?
At the moment my PC is the only one pointing to the 4006 as a DG, using its vlan1 IP and it is working fine...
Thank you, Todd
