Dear Professional,

I want to test my configured call manager and 4 ip phones in my test lab environment.

I have a Catalyst 2950 switch with 24 ports ONLY available in my lab.

How can I utilize my 2950 to access to my call manager and ip phones.

I configured my DHCP in my call manager and I attached all my devices (CallManager and IP Phones Devices) in the switch.

I need your expertise in this scenario and I really appreciate it if you can give me answer ASAP.

Thank you


Re: Switching

2950 is a layer 2 only capable switch, not much you can except make sure that the CM port is in the same vlan as the IP Phone. Better yet, do not configure anything and jsut plug them in. By defualt all the ports belongs to vlan 1. If you decide to put the ip phone in the separate vlan than the CM, it will NOT work at all without a router.

also, you might want to consolidate your posts to the same question asked in lan switching forum.
