Got 2 switches connected together as follows

port f0/26 on a cisco WS-C2950C-24 to port g0/48 on a cisco WS-C2960G-48TC-L

They are auto sensing speed and duplex and I cannot find a command to tie them down.

The problem is that WS-C2950C-24 is auto sensing the duplex as full and WS-C2960G-48TC-L is auto sensing the duplex as half

I have coppied the show ver, show int and the interface config from both switches in a notepad attachment

I hope someone can help me with this

Can you please let us know the GBIC module you are using on 2960G Switch. Your 2950 switch port is 100 base FX and I think you also have a GBIC on 2960G as well.

Hello Chris,

It looks like the SFP on 2960 port doesnot support "auto-negotiation" and falling back on half-duplex. Please try configuring the duplex as full under the SFP interface configuration.

Config t

Switch(config)#Interface ge x/y

Switch(config-if)#media-type sfp

Switch(config-if)#duplex full

This should take care of the problem.

HTH,Please rate if it does.
