Hi Paul, This is now working.. It looks like there was some sort of issue with Windows 7 image that I was using as a server (this is a test network at this stage). As soon as I swapped the windows 7 machine with xp machine, inter vlan routing started working. I did try swapping the machine earlier on but I had replaced it with another windows 7 machine and shut down the windows firewall service. It appears that windows 7 firewall stays on even after the firewall service has been stopped and it would only allow ping from the same subnet. I have now put another windows 7 machine there with firewall turned off completely and everything is working as I intended. So the design was correct all along, I spent few hours just going over everything to find any errors. :-) Thank you very much for all your help Paul. It certainly cleared few things for me. Regards.
