Hi

I have 2 x Cisco Catalysts 4006 that support 20 Cisco 2950s between 2 floors. Providing failover if one was to faiil. I would like to know whether i can configure them such that they act as my default gateway using HSRP i imagine. Is this possible? They would also have to share the same IP Address.

Also can the Cisco 2950s support separate VLANS on different subnets?

Regards

Yes.

>Is this possible? They would also have to share the same IP Address.

No. The only address they would "share" would be the virtual IP address.

>Also can the Cisco 2950s support separate VLANS on different subnets?

Yes. Since VLAN's by defination are seperate subnets.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Assuming that the 4006's are configured to route, you don't have to do anything. Just configure the PC's default gateway with the IP address of the 4006 route processor.
