I recently started to look into the configuration of the 6 2950 switches that have been setup "forever" and need help understanding something. Is there a specific uplink port or does the switch automagically know?
Here's our setup:
Internet -> PIX 506e -> Catalyst 2950 (1) _ Port 23
Catalyst 2950 (1) _ Port 24 -> Catalyst 2950 (2) _ Port 23
Catalyst 2950 (2) _ Port 24 -> Catalyst 2950 (3) _ Port 23
Does it need to be like that? Could it been any ports as long as they were connected via a crossover cable?
I'm in the process of setting up a redundant cluster with the switches, shouldn't the command and standby command switches be connected to multiple other switches?
