I have a problem connecting the management ethernet port on a 15454E to an ethernet port on a Cat4500. I simply can't get a link on the port...
Currently the only way I can get a link, is by inserting a small soho netgear switch between the 15454E and the Cat4500.
ok, so the Port on the MIC-C/T/P comes from the TCC2 or TCC2P card which has an internal repeater or switch.
So, for connetion to a cisco switch, like 4K, you has to use a cross over cable.
I guess, that the small soho netgear switch has the auto MDX function. This function detecet te link and will switch automaticly to the cross function.
If yoe use the management port on the MS-ISC-100T Card you has also to use a cross cable, because the MS-ISC-100T is an internal "blade" switch.
hope this will work
