Using management port of Cisco 9300 to to connect to my laptop for TFTP connection after configuring both ports with same subnet, TFTP working fine I was able to copy files from laptop to Switch also I was able to ping the switch from laptop but could not ping the laptop from the switch through management port, it didn't stop my work but just curious why I can not ping the laptop from the switch using management port, is there anything in management port settings that blocks outgoing ping request by default.
Also I was able to ping the laptop from any switch access port, just to let you know that that there is no setting in laptop that blocks the incoming ping request.
Management port set to: 192.168.173.5 255.255.255.240
Laptop Ethernet Lan port set to: 192.168.173.4 255.255.255.240
If you can not ping the laptop from the switch, make sure the windows firewall application on the laptop is not blocking ICMP traffic.
If that is not the case, are you connecting your laptop to interface GigabitEthernet0/0 on the switch? if yes, and you want to ping the laptop, you would need to source the ping from the vrf interface.
