I have a problem interconnecting three networks (Please see attached files). Network X,Y and Z are different networks with different VTP domains. The core switch will be the 3550-24-SMI (Device D). Device C and D are connected by means of a WS-G5484 Short wavelenght GBIC. And device B and C is also connected by means of WS-G5484. Connection from device A and B is by WS-G5486 (long wavelenght). In between B and C, it is trunk. The same with C and D. Device D and E will be connected by using a WS-G5484 GBIC Module.How could I connect the network? Please help.
I am very much thankful for your response. I will try this suggestion tomorrow. I will update you of the outcome.
As for the other link,device A(6509) and B (3550). This is my other concern. device B,C, and D are in one network. And the core switch is device D. Device D will be the central point of Control for the 3 networks. Just this afternoon, I connected the physical link from A to B using long wavelenght GBICs (WS-G5486). The link is now active, but I don't know how to start with the configuration so that VLAN 2 on A and VLAN 2 on D and E network could see each other.Again, thank you very much for your response I appreciate it.
It also seems as if the three networks are not under the same adminstration. Therefore, I assume that they are also not in the same VTP domain.
You must be aware of this when you are making interconnections. You could for example connect vlan2 on network X to vlan 200 on network Y. This will work perfectly as long as you do not set up vlan trunks between the different networks.
Internetwork traffic can then be routed over the interconnected vlans.
When the networks are all under your administration, you must keep in mind that you should set up a consistent relation between vlan-id's and IP networks. In fact, that is what I missed in this case. This setup boils down to creating one big vtp domain. You would then have something like net 172.18 on vlan 18 for network X, Y and Z, and another unique vlan-id per other IP range.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
