Can I multiple connection between 2 swtiches?

Hi,

For some special arrangement, I would like to connect 2 access ports from a 3550 switch to 3560 switch.

1 port for vlan 200, another port for vlan 201.

Will this introduce bad thing to the switches?            

Thanks,

Roy

BY default, cisco runs pvst and does the same as you discussed.

Hello Roy,

As stated it wont cause any problem but best way you to configure the ports in tunk configuration with vlan allowed over the trunk.

Hope to Help !!
