I hope can someone help me with my problem on my Cisco 2960 switch.
My question is this: when I configure the Gig0/1 port on my client 2960 switch as trunk, and connect it to my server 3560 switch on port Gig0/24 with
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q and
switchport mode trunk, there is no connection running on either port, and when I check the status of the of my 2960 port, this is what I get:
GigabitEthernet0/1 is down, line protocol is down (notconnect) Hardware is Gigabit Ethernet, address is 0018.18da.8b81 (bia 0018.18da.8b81) MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1000000 Kbit, DLY 10 usec, reliability 255/255, txload 1/255## Heading ##, rxload 1/255 Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set Keepalive set (10 sec) Auto-duplex, Auto-speed, media type is 10/100/1000BaseTX input flow-control is off, output flow-control is unsupported ARP type: ARPA, ARP Timeout 04:00:00 Last input never, output never, output hang never Last clearing of "show interface" counters never Input queue: 0/75/0/0 (size/max/drops/flushes); Total output drops: 0 Queueing strategy: fifo Output queue: 0/40 (size/max) 5 minute input rate 0 bits/sec, 0 packets/sec 5 minute output rate 0 bits/sec, 0 packets/sec 0 packets input, 0 bytes, 0 no buffer Received 0 broadcasts (0 multicast) 0 runts, 0 giants, 0 throttles
When I connect Gig0/24 to another port on my 2960, for example port gig0/2, and configure it as trunk, it status connected, and there is a connection.
Is this a bad port?
