I am working on getting 2 older 2924 switches configured to play around with. I have some VLANs setup but had a few questions.
1) I have the switches connected on Fa0/24 on each switch. How do I configure them to allow the VLAN traffice to pass between each switch? Is Switchport mode trunk sufficient or do I need to make it part of a VLAN as well?
2) I can;t seem to assign an IP address to the switch itslef. Do I just assign an IP address to the management VLAN instead?
Thanks in advance! All replies rated!
Try the following on both switches:
switch trunk encaps dot1q
switch mode trunk
switch trunk allowed vlan add 1,2,3 or
2. This is a layer 2 switch, you the only address that you can have is the management address on vlan 1. You can change the management vlan, but for starters it's on vlan 1 and define a gateway if needed:
int vlan 1
ip address 192.168.1.2
ip default-gateway 192.168.1.1
