2600 router connected to 2950 switch

Hi!

If i'm connecting my 2950switch to 2600 router, what configuration need to be done on the ports that connect these 2 devices together? Do i need trunking for the switch end?

Hi check out the link below it provides some config examples for 802.1Q Encapsulation on a cisco 2600 router..

Hope that helps you.

Depends on whether you need to have more than 1 vlan routed , if not then you don't need to trunk anything .

hi!

yes the router interface used to connect to the switch has multiple sub interfaces for different vlans.

Then yes you would have to setup the switch for trunking , as routers can't trunk dynamically you will have to force the switchport on as a trunk instead of using desirable or auto. Your native vlan for the link must match on each end . Also clear any vlans that are not needed across the link .
