Re: Catalyst 2950 problem

The message means that a Spanning tree BPDU was received with a dot1q tag on a port that is not configured as a trunk.

This means that either the port is not configured as a trunk and should be, or that the connecting device is configured as a trunk and should not be.

The second syslog message indicates that the port is being blocked due to the inconsistency as described above.

Re: Catalyst 2950 problem

Verify that the configuration and operational state of the listed interface and that of the interface to which it is connected have the same mode (access or trunk). If the mode is trunk, verify the same encapsulation (none, ISL or 802.1Q). Once these parameters are consistent, spanning tree will automatically unblock the interfaces as appropriate.
