Cisco 2950 series switches are layer 2 switches which can have vlan's created and works for layer 2 functionlaity.

Hope to Help !!

Re: Question

Hello,

Irrespective of the image you are running, 2950 switches cannot be configured as Layer 3 devices. It is a hardware limitation by design. When you are using 2950/2900XL/3500XL, you need to have a dedicated Layer 3 device to perform intervlan routing or perform the functionality of a gateway.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

NT
