routing 2950

Hi,

We have a Cisco 2950-24 switch on a remote location with single vlans.

Is it possible to do routing between vlans on that switch?

Best regards

Jorg

Re: routing 2950

Hi Jorg

Unfortunatley not. The 2950 range of switches are purely Layer 2 switches.

Your only options to provide routing between the vlans on your 2950 switch is either

a. Uplink the switch to a router and configure "router on a stick (ROAS)" to provide inter vlan routing.

b. Swap the switch for a 3560/3750 model. These are multi layer switches and will provide intervlan routing. You will require the EMI image if you want to run routing protocols (RIP, OSPF, EIGRP etc).

Re: routing 2950

hi thanks a lot. then we need to upgrade the switch to a 3750 model. Or use multiple ip subnets in 1 vlan for the time being.

Re: routing 2950

Hi

Yes u need to upgrade u r switches,before using the multiple subnets in u r switch verify weather u r able configure multiple ip address under u r SVI on this switch.

Hi,

T think it is possible to use multiple ip subnets under 1 vlan as it is configured then as a layer 2 vlan, so 1 broadcast domain for different ip subnets.
