Hi to fellow forumers,
I am a newbie on the use of trunking and I had some enquiries about the use of it. If anyone can help, that's would be great and thanks in advance.
I had 3 different networks in which 2 are connected to normal linksys/dlink switch and one to cisco 2950c. All 3 networks are running on different subnets. I had just purchased another 2950c in hope to trunk up all the 3 networks together so that they can intercommunicate.
a. For the linksys/dlink switches, can I use straight cables to connect to the trunk port on the new 2950c?
b. Instead of using a router to route traffic, are there any ways to configure the new 2950c so that all three different subnets can talk to one another?
Initially, I was under the impression that 2950c should be enough for the task but now, it seems like I am totally wrong. Any advise on the matter is greatly appreciated.
