Hi,

I have a 3550 switch with vlans set on it and I want to set up a 2950T to access the vlans I have setup on the 3550.

I just want to know if I am missing anything from below:

Cisco 3550:

SwitchA# vlan database
SwitchA(vlan)# vtp domain vtpdom
SwitchA(vlan)# vtp server
SwitchA(vlan)# exit

Then I am going to change Gig0/1 to be a trunk, run a cat6e cross over cable to the Cisco 2950's Gig0/1 port


Cisco 2950:

SwitchB# vlan database
SwitchB(vlan)# vtp domain vtpdom
SwitchB(vlan)# vtp client
SwitchB(vlan)# exit

Is that all I need to do?

Thanks,

Yes, As far as I know, After you set the 3550's Gig0/1 to be a trunk, If the 2950T's Gig0/1 was on it's defaults it should auto convert to trunk.

Of course, you have to define your vlans on the 3550. For example:

[code:1]
Switch(vlan)#vlan 2 name TEST
[/code:1]

aagjaketan, Setting encapsulation is required on the router side only, when you connect it to a switch's trunk. (i.e router on a stick) :)
