Connecting 2 switches

I tried connecting 2 Cat 2950 switches with a straight cable, ports LED don't light up. Do I need crossover cable for the connection? I am trying to connect one PC to each switch and in vlan 1. Do I need to put the switch into a cluster?

Hi:

The auto MDIX feature doesn;t exist with the 2950.

Use a crossover cable and let me know what happens. If your set up doesnt work, post the configs of the switches when you come back.

And no, you dont need to configure any clusters.

Need for cluster? Not for this purpose.

Likely it's what you already suspect, need for crossover cable.
