Connecting a Cat 2950 to a Cat 6509 using a cross over cable. This comes up as trunk but I dont want it to.
When it was first connected, it led to some spanning tree errors as the port vlan at both ends were different. On the C2950, I had vlan 1 and on the C6509, I had Vlan 211. I change the port vlan to 1 on the C6509 and then this was ok but now it is trunking.
I dont want to trunk on these port. What I want it to create a connection as a normal access port in say vlan 211.
How do I do this?
And then after doing the above, will routers connected to the switch be able to talk to each other via vlan 211?
I am running CatOS on the 6509 and IOS on the 2950.
