Re: Requesting a 2950 Catalyst Configuration Template

Hello Shyam,

the C2950 is a Layer2 switch and cannot handle L3 aspects like redundancy:

STP is a L2 protocol for managing link redundancy and again is not meant to handle routers redundancy.

You can just put all users in the same vlan and also the two routers internal lan ports.

They have to be configured to be in the same subnet.

If routers are consumer boxes you can just configure each PC to use one or the other.

If they were Cisco boxes you could use HSRP to provide a consistent single virtual gateway.

Hope to help
