Hi everyone,

Suppose that a router is connected to two switches(switch A and switch B).

SwitchA is connected to 2 pcs and a server.SwitchB is connected to 1 pc and 1 server.

When i didn't configure vlans on switches PDUs of pcs of switchA succesfully reached pcs of switchB.

After configuration of vlans pdus are unsuccesful to reach.

What must be done?

I have this problem too.

Is there a connection between switchA n SwitchB,if its then what port config is on that i.e its a access port or a trunk port.

What is the config of the ports on the siwtch to which the router is connected..I think u need to provide more details.

Thanks Mahmood for your reply!

SwitchA and SwitchB are connected via router.

Anyways, i got the remedy for the problem by making them access ports.

can u tell me in brief what functions Access ports and Trunk ports perform?
