How Can I Use "ping" and "telnet" to Connect to Devices in VLAN Network? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have some devices in a VLAN network, and their IP are the same: 1.2.3.4; they are connected to a switch and a PC on WAN port, the OS of the PC is Ubuntu and the VLAN tags are 1.2.3.101, 1.2.3.102..., I can ping those devices by using the parameter "-i", eg.ping -i 1.2.3.101 to check the device, and I can telnet them by using "-b", e.g. telnet -b 101 to telnet to the device.

    Now I want to use Windows OS on the PC, but I can't find the parameter like -i or -b on Ubuntu, so I want to ask if there's any solution for ping and telnet to a VLAN IP? or there's any tool or command will help me to do that?

    Forgive my english, I hope you all can understand what I am talking about... Actually, I'm not sure this post is suitable or not for here, but it confused me for a long time, please let me know if you have any solution, thanks a lot!!

    Best Regards,

    Michael

  • Hi, I would check your VLAN's config. You should not be forced to play with the TTL with the ping (-i) and telnet -b I did not find what it do.

    If the PC is on WAN port, should it be simplier to simply add another NIC to it in the LAN ?

  • Give Cygwin a shot: http://cygwin.com/

    Likewise, you can install Ubuntu in a VM on the Windows machine and accomplish the same as if it were running native.
