hi! i'm planning to connect a L3 (3560sw) to a L2 2950 switch with multiple vlans configured. My question is that, with the default setting, must i issue a "switchport mode trunk" for both of the switches' interconnected port? or will both the ports autonegotiate by itself to create a trunk? Must i configure encapsulation dot1q in this case?
For intervlan routing, apart of issueing the "IP routing" command on the L3 switch + setting ip for each of the vlan interface created, do i need to run any routing protocol or static route to do the vlan routing within these few vlan interfaces?
