I've got a catalyst 2950 which I've just done the initial configuration on. I've set the IP address of the switch, and with a PC plugged directly in, I can reach it via ping, telnet, and http. However, when I plug the same port into another switch (netgear, non-managed switch), I can not reach it. I've tried both a straight-through and a crossover ethernet cable.
When I attach the 2950 to the other switch, I get the following messages on the console:
00:03:47: %SPANTREE-7-RECV_1Q_NON_TRUNK: Received 802.1Q BPDU on non trunk FastEthernet0/1 VLAN1.
00:03:47: %SPANTREE-7-BLOCK_PORT_TYPE: Blocking FastEthernet0/1 on VLAN0001. Inconsistent port type.
but can't figure out how to configure the 2950 to correct this.
thanks for any info,
