VLAN help

I ahve to make 4 VLANS currently i have 2x 2960 switches and 1 router , since i m new to cisco i want to know how to terminate and implement this .


Re: VLAN help

Hi Imran, I helped someone a while back with similar requirements, please see attached thread. In your case you have 2960 switches which are pure layer 2 switches so you will have to do the intervlan routing through your router. Use dot1q trunk from router to switch, but if your router have available FE ports I would recommend have dedicated FE port for each of your 4 vlans other wise just use trunking , I believe you could stackwise the 2960s and from there connecto to router.. if you can build a script and post it for revision we will be more than happy to assist you.
