I have the following setup:
HOST A - SWITCH B - SWITCH C - ROUTER D - SWITCH E - ROUTER F
Now, I understand (and it works) that the connections between the switches are in trunk mode.
So, with regard to above:
1. SWITCH B interface to the HOST A is in access mode.
2. The interfaces between SWITCH-B and SWITCH-C is in trunk mode (VLAN 100).
3. The interface between SWITCH-c & ROUTER-D is in access mode, on the same VLAN.
My questions are:
In what mode should the interface between ROUTER D and SWITCH E operate?
In what mode should the interface between SWITCH E and ROUTER F operate?
Basically HOST A should be able to ping ROUTER F.
And what is the logic? Should it be in access mode over the same VLAN 100? Different VLAN? Or in trunk mode?
Thanks a lot. Appreciate the insight.
