I am testing out a Web Filter device and want to hook it up to my LAN so that I can configure it. I have completed the initial configuration with the console. When I hook it into my 4507 switch I get no link light and can't get at it. I hooked it into a Catalyst Express switch and got a link light. I went into the port that I had it plugged into on the 4507 and tested every combination of Speed/Duplex known to man and still no cigar. The manufacturer of the device does not have weekend coverage for trial devices so I can't check with them. I read their documentation and it says that the port is 10/100. The 4507 is a 10/100/1000 auto sensing port of course. Any ideas people?
You are probably using the incorrect cable between the 2 . More than likely the card on the 4500 does not support auto mdix (auto-xover) while the catalyst express does . If you use a crossover cable it will probably work .
