I have a need to place a port into more than one VLAN, or at least let the device on the port communicate with more than one VLAN. I have a 2960 switch, but there doesn't seem to be any support for this on this model. Am I correct in assuming that I need a layer 3 switch like the 3560 to do this?
Well, I know that when you place a port into trunk mode in belongs to all VLANs on that switch by default. I did try that as a desparate attempt to get communication going through the port. But I assume that the trunking mode setting on a switchport makes it impossible for communication with a host device. I read a document on the old 2900XL switch that had a command, "switchport mode multi", that would be perfect for this situation, but does not seem to ba in the newer models. Is there any equivalent?
You would need to connect the swithcport to a device with a NIC in it that also supports trunking. There are several NICs that support 802.1q standards based trunking. Check to see if yours is capable and configure switchport as 802.1q trunk as well.
You cannot configure a multi-VLAN port when a trunk is configured on the switch. You must connect the multi-VLAN port only to a router or server. The switch automatically transitions to VTP transparent mode when the multi-VLAN port feature is enabled, making the VLAN Trunk Protocol (VTP) disabled. No VTP configuration is required.
The multi-VLAN port feature is supported only on the Catalyst 2900 XL/3500 XL series switches. This feature is not supported on the Catalyst 4000/5000/6000 series or any other Cisco Catalyst switches.
We have 3 identical switches configured by someone else and would like to claim some of the Gigabit ports(G1/G2/G3/G4) for use on servers. When we try to change the wiring and configuration, we run in to connectivity issues. Attached is a des...
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
