I am using two 4503 chasis based switch with sup engine. on sup engine i am having 12 gi ports and 8 sfp ports.

when i am connecting my 4503 to 2950 switches, i am using straight cable and link is coming up.

but when i am connecting 4503 to other 4503 with straight cable link is not coming up.

Do we need a cross cable for conencting two 4503 switch?
