With regards to connecting non-Cisco managed / unmanaged switches like Linksys and D-Link to a Cisco core switch 4506, is there any problem with regards to VLAN assignment?
Lets say for example that I dont want to configure anything on the non-Cisco switch and I want to configure only on the 4506 switch, can I make the port of 4506 connecting to non-Cisco switch as an access port (instead of a trunk port) belonging to a particular VLAN X? Then I can configure a Layer 3 VLAN interface for the same VLAN X in 4506 and define other things like ip address, ip-helper address etc. Is that kind of solution workable?
Thanks a lot
