If you want to access only 2950 via telnet then there is not need to set the IP on 6506. You need IP on both the boxes only when you want to telnet to both of them.
You can assign an IP to only one vlan SVI on 2950 as this is a L2 switch and allows you to have only one SVI enable on it. You can use any vlan to manage it like vlan 2 vlan3 or vlan X but only one SVI will be UP/UP.
As 6506 is a L3 switch so you can telnet to it using any Vlan as all the vlan SVI's will be up/up
To enable telnet to the switches,set the enable password first and then
I would assume your 6500 has a layer 3 (MSFC) which routes between vlans. You can use vlan 1 (for ex.) on all the switches and configure ip addresses, such as,
192.168.200.1 -> 6509
192.168.200.2 -> 2950-1
192.168.200.3 -> 2950-2
and so on.
Set the default gateway on the 2950s to 192.168.200.1 (which is your 6509's ip address on vlan 1). This will help the switch to communicate with any other vlan, that you have in the network. Your 6509 MSFC config will look like,
[toc:faq]The ProblemOn traditional switches whenever we have a trunk
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...
