Today in this tutorial i am going to show you how to configure InterVLAN Routing. But before that we need to know what is InterVLAN Routing and Why we use it? What is the benefits of using intervlan routing?
InterVLAN Routing allow hosts and PCs in different vlan to communicate with each other. As we all know machines or PC in same VLAN can communicate with each other but if you want machines from other VLAN to communicate with you, for that you need to configure InterVLAN Routing.So here in this tutorial i will explain step wise method to easily configure InterVLAN Routing.As i love to explain to the point here i have mentioned step wise and to the point method to configure InterVlan routing.This article is completely focussed on configuration of InterVLAN using a cisco packet tracer.

InterVLAN Routing Configuration

STEP 1: Take four PC ,One Switch and A Router and connect them As i have shown in above topology Image.


STEP 2: Assign IP Address to ALL Computers.    and   to PC0  and  PC1   and  to PC2 and   PC3


STEP 3: Configure VLAN,Assign switch Ports to VLAN and Set Ports to access Mode.




Switch#config t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Switch(config)#vlan 10


Switch(config)#vlan 20


Switch(config)#int range fa0/1-2

Switch(config-if-range)#switchport mode access

Switch(config-if-range)#switchport access vlan 10


Switch(config)#int range fa0/3-4

Switch(config-if-range)#switchport mode access

Switch(config-if-range)#switchport access vlan 20


STEP 4: Create TRUNK PORT on SWITCH PORT which connected with ROUTER.

Since here in this Lab interface Fa0/5 port of switch is connected with Router and this port will have to route both VLAN network so we have to create TRUNK PORT on this Interface.



Switch(config)#int fa0/5

Switch(config-if)#no shut

Switch(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
STEP 5:GO  To Router interface Fa0/0 and turned ON interface.
Router(config)#int fa0/0

Router(config-if)#no shut




STEP 6:Create sub-interfaces, set 802.1Q trunking protocol and ip address on each sub-interface



Router(config)#int fa0/0.1

Router(config-subif)#encapsulation dot1q 10

Router(config-subif)#ip address

Router(config-subif)#no shut


Router(config)#int fa0/0.2

Router(config-subif)#encapsulation dot1q 20

Router(config-subif)#ip address

Router(config-subif)#no shut
