C2950's are not stackable, the only stackable switches are C3750's. But I think you mean Clustering, this guide will help you to accomplish your required setup.

I suggest you install Cisco Network Assistant, this will help you to set things up using a GUI interface.

Cisco has a very distinct terminology for interconnected switches:

1. Cisco StackWise: Available only with 3750 and 3750E series Switches. In which one may connect upto 9 Switches in row, and all of them become virtually 1 single switch.

2.Cisco GigaStack: USed to connect multiple switches (with GBIC Slots), that gives more scalability

3. Cisco Switch Clusters: A built-in Management function for switches that allows management of multiple switches using a single IP

I hope this makes all the things more transparent to you.

Please rate if helpful.

Kind Regards,
