Connect 2 phones to one switch port

Could anyone tell me if it is possible to connect two phones (7911 and 7940) on the same switch port(2950)?

Thank you

Re: Connect 2 phones to one switch port

it will work. just remember that both phones will share that port. Plug another switch into the 2950 port and put both phones in the new switch.

Or plug 7940 into the 2950 (powered locally using power cord). Daisy chain the 7940 to the 7911 using a cross cable. (7911 powered locally using power cord)

Again these type of connections are not recommended.

Ok it worked like that. I don't know why but the oposite (7912 -> 7940) doesn't work.

Nevertheless the cable between them should be straight.

Thanks!
