Unanswered Question
Feb 20th, 2007

i need to configure a gigabyte port on front with a Switched port (layer 2).

This gigabit port are Routed Port, but i've read that if i connect this card on slot 3 of the switch , the port became layer 2.

Is this correct or no ?

i've read this information in the follow link:

I have this problem too.

Internally, the WS-X4232-L3 module has two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces (gigabit 3 and gigabit 4) that connect the router to the switch backplane. The switch backplane uses the first two ports in that slot to connect to the router module. When you insert the WS-X4232-L3 module in slot 3, Gigabit Ethernet interfaces 3 and 4 connect to the backplane ports 3/1 and 3/2. Ports 3/1 and 3/2 are Layer 2 ports with configuration on the switch Supervisor Engine. Gigabit Ethernet interfaces 3 and 4 are Layer 3 ports with configuration on the router module.
