Im trying to connect a 2950 switch to a 3550 switch. I have tried straight through and crossover cat 5e patch cables and the results are the same. There is no indication on the 2950 switch port and there is a slow blinking amber light on the 3550 switch port. The 3550 switch port is on VLAN 1 and the 2950 switch port VLAN 2. Placing the ports on same VLAN does not change the status. When forcing speed to 100 Mbps and duplex to full, there is no indication on the 2950 switch port and the 3550 switch port turned green.
switchport access vlan 1
switchport mode access
switchport mode dynamic desirable
Any help would be appreciated.
