Hi,


Cisco 3560 can be created as L3 etherchannel as it is a L3 switch and on 2950 end you need to create L2 port channel,check out the below link with details configurations.

Hi,


You can set the ports on the 3560 as L3 ports because it is a L3 switch (can operate as both L2 and L3 switch).


The 2950 or 2960 are only L2 switches. You don't have the option to create L3 ports (SVI or Routed).

The 2950/2960 can only have L2 ports and one working interface VLAN with an IP address for admin purposes.


Federico.
