I have a problem at the moment where i need to connect an Extreme switch to my Cisco 2950 switch. The problem is that the port light comes up amber and does not pass any frames across to the VLAN.

The switch port on my Cisco 2950 has the following configuration:

interface FastEthernet0/10
 description INSIDE spare
 switchport access vlan 99
 switchport mode access
 switchport nonegotiate

Spanning-Tree is implemented on VLAN 99

Until yesterday port-fast was also enabled on this port. However i was lead to believe that this could be adding to the problem. Could you please advise me on how the switch should be configured to connect the the Extreme switch successfully?

Unfortunately i dont have any visability of the Extreme switch.
