Nope, this is not possible.2960' switches doesnot support gigabit stacking modules. They have only SFP ports that can be used for fiber uplinking.

Hi,

I think you mean Clustering both Switches. Clustering is possible between both Switches. The only major benefit you will get is save 1 IP address for the management interface if you want. Just download the CNA (Cisco Network Assistant), it is free and gives you Windows interface.

as far as I know Stacking option is only available in 3750's with the use of Stackwise cable. You cannot stack even if you have 2x2950's, but sure you can Cluster them together.

Re: stacking Cat 2960 to Cat 2950

Hi

I have a similar question. I have just "inherited" a network containing a combination of cat 2950s and cat 2960s. The network is on three floors with 2 cat6 links between floors 1 - 2 and floors 2 - 3. I am in a position to optimise this network and was wondering about the best options for linking the switches together.

Thanks
