Client unable to reach gateway

Hi guys,


I just set up a Virtual Mobility Controller on VMWare, broadcast SSID on a specific VLAN and allow all traffic.


The Client received the right ip, subnet, gateway and DNS (DHCP from firewall). However, i couldnt ping the gateway and have no access to the network. I could directly ping the Controller IP on that VLAN.


On the VMware, i have created a Trunk Port Group with VLAN ID All.


I have tested the VMWare Trunk with a Windows VM with Trunk Port Group assigned to the NIC. I am able to received the right IP settings for different VLAN through changing the VLAN ID on the nic on OS Level.


What am i missing?




Re: Client unable to reach gateway

Have you enabled Promiscuous Mode and Forged Transmits on the port?
