Hi,

You need to configure VTP for VLAN management between the switches, you need a trunk between the 2 switches. You need to configure layer 3 interfaces on the 3550 to handle the interVLAN IP traffic or pass this up to a router with ethernet sub-interfaces. You need to configure a default gateway for your internet traffic.

HTH,

Unfortunately CAT 2948G cannot do trunking , only bridging , L3 (using BVI Interfaces)and also does encap dot1q, and Vlan's.

See the following link to find out how limited is : http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps606/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a008007e6ce.html

Knowing all the above how can we configure the connectivity between CAT 2948G and CAT 3550 PWR (knowing that is already connected to Internet) . Only servers/workstation connected to 2948G cannot connect to Internet.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Regards,

Maddox
