Hi Bill,


Excellent question. We have used many 2950's through the years and did discover this limitation when working with Voice Vlans. We have never found a workaround that enabled us to not have to use the (switchport mode trunk) config as you can with newer switch models.


Hope this helps!

Rob

Hi Ulrich,


Nice find on this one :) I'll have to lab up a 2950 and give this a try. 5 points for your good support here!


Thanks again,

Rob
