Re: cisco switch & cajun p333t switch

Not sure you have given enough information here. Might help if you include the exact log messages from both devices and the configs for the connected interfaces.

Concerning the SPANTREE ERROR:

Where does fa0/24 connect to?

Is this the connection to the p333t switch?

If so is this the only connection to the p333t switch from your 2960?

Are your trunk modes set correctly between the devices? i.e. both devices are set to trunk the connected interfaces and utilize 802.1Q encapsulation.

Also ensure your speed/duplex options match up correctly between the two devices.

Concerning IP addressing:

If not related to above, did you set a default gateway?

Re: cisco switch & cajun p333t switch

At first thank you for reply.

the fa0/24 only from 2960 connecting to p333t switch using cat6 cable (cross cable)

no trunk between the p333t and 2960 , I'm put switch 2960 to work 0n default configuration , and i don't use trunk .

the speed/duplex on 2960 default , but the p333t also . now will send to you the log when i'm plug and unplug the cable from 2960 switch that be connected to p333t .

i don't like work trunk between tow switchs

only L2(access switch ) switch .

can i solve this problems if use this command ???

switch(config)#int fa0/24

> switch(config-if)#spanning-tree portfast


no spanning-tree vlan vlan1

the log below appear on 2960 switch

Re: cisco switch & cajun p333t switch

I wouldn't enable portfast between two switches. Only use on ports that connect to end stations.

no spanning-tree vlan vlan1: This would disable STP for vlan1 on this switch. We use this for our remote sites that only utilize 1-2 switches and STP is unnecessary. This could work from the information provided.

My other suggestion, if you are dealing with a single vlan, is to configure fa0/24 as an access port.

You are receiving 802.1Q BPDU's on that interface. I guess I could be wrong but this indicates to me that the port on the p333t is in a trunking state.

Hello .

i'm trying to do the no spanning-tree vlan vlan1 , and this suggestion is a good and all computer behind the cisco 2960 take ip addresss ,

but i want to know why 2960 block the port connecting to p333t , and only one port connecting to p333t , i don't know the problem ??
