I have a habit of installing a new switch into my network and Keep breaking my SC0 setup. Here is what I mean. I configure and install a switch. I set up trunking on the uplink and I can't get to SC0 with it set to VLAN 1. I have to set it to the VLAN that the ports are set to. I know it should work set to Vlan 1 so, How do I keep breaking it???
a VLAN is meant to separate traffic, so only "ports" associated with the same VLAN can communicate. If your SC0 "port" is in a different VLAN than your PC then no communication is possible without the help of a router.
Assign your PC access port to VLAN 1 (infact it is in VLAN 1 per factory default), make sure the (sub)network and mask are the same and you should get connectivity.
If you are not attached to VLAN 1 you should NOT get connectivity. You can look at it as a security feature, user ports should not even be allowed to access Switch login.
Thanks Martin, I guess I didn't explain my problem well. I have multiple switches in which I trunk the uplink. SC0 on these switches is set to VLAN 1. Here is where I messed Up. When I telnet into the switch from a remote location or try and ping the switch IP address, I get no response. If I set SC0 to the Vlan that the ports are configured at, I am able to get a response from the switch. My understanding is that I should be able to get to the switch with SC0 set to Vlan 1 due to trunking. I am guessing I am doing something wrong or out of sequence when I set up the VTP Domain Or the Trunking Link....
Sounds like you do not have trunking setup on the uplink and it is an access port . The uplink would have to be a trunk if you want a separate management domain . Also vlan 1 would have to have a definition on your layer 3 device that is doing the routing . Also your default gateway would have to point to that vlan 1 router address , "set ip route default " Hi Joe .
Hi everyone, I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide a newcomer like myself!

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
I will have 2 Catalyst switches and 8 Industrial IE3000, and they will be connected with fiber.
