Hello,

I am struggling to get anywhere with a L3 switch implementation

I have read various posts and am starting with what seems to be the first basic connection test.

* I have one server hosted on AWS EC2 instance with public IP that I can connect to
* I defined one hub called home
* I defined one switch called Cloud Switch
* I defined virtual interface on switch connected to hub home with IP 192.168.1.254
* I have a raspberry pi running bridge SW in cascade mode to hub home
* RPi network is behind Linksys router using IP in range of 192.168.1.0/24 and successfully connects to AWS server (see picture)
* I have tried with and without securenat enabled

At this point I should be able to ping 192.168.1.254 but cannot.

Where should i look to figure out why I can't make this basic connection and see the switch virtual interface? Help appreciated as I can't continue learning the rest until I get one connection set up.

My goal is to have 3 sites all connected to the cloud server with a L3 switch creating access for all sites to one another and for a remote user to any site by connection to cloud.

I thought I would just try and get help to get a single branch running to fully understand the basics first.

Thanks in advance.

Where did you ping from?

Did you create localbridge?
Is it tap mode?

Hi thisjun - thanks so much for reading and replying to my message ; I'm sorry for the delayed response, I somehow missed the notification it was responded to :( My bad, I hope to be able to make some progress.

I pinged from the RPi box at home that is cascade connected to the AWS sever hub called home.

The Rpi at home has a local TAP interface running

Did you configure bridge between tap and LAN interface?

I have the tap interface running which was working for remote access to my network , not sure I understand what bridge you mean?

I have bridge SW running and cascade connected to central server.

Do you mean some local bridge in addition to the tap?

Please create OS bridge between tap and LAN interface.
