connect Cisco 4506 to Cisco3550 via gigaport on static access mode

Cisco 4506 is configure w/ as follows:
vlan 5
interface Vlan5              
 ip address 60.60.60.3 255.255.255.0 up  
interface GigabitEthernet2/4                            
 switchport access vlan 5                        
 switchport mode access

Cisco 3550 is configure
interface GigabitEthernet0/2
 description B48(mibzzx) link
 switchport access vlan 5
 switchport mode access
apply cdp neighbors is seen on both devices and vlan are active. however no traffic flow as can not ping any device from to and from either device.

If the 4506 can see the 3550 in it's CDP table, traffic is flowing.

Make sure the devices in question are in VLAN 5 and that they have IP addresses on the 60.60.60.0/24 network.

I now have it connected. In cat3550 all other ports were in native vlan 1, hence not talking to port w/ vlan 5 that is  link to cat4506. I assumed that vlan 1 always propagated no need to trunk.

My solution was to port needing connection to cat4506 must also be in switchport access vlan 5

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

So the problem was that the other devices weren't in VLAN 5?

All devices were on same switch and the ports were in vlan 1 as no configuration were made on interfaces. The switch was made w/  vlan 1 set to 60.60.60.10 255..255.255.0. . And vlan 5 was added in attempt to connect to another device via the cat4506. Hence the entry swithport access vlan 5 on this gigaport uplink.
We now assume if the switchport interface is set to swtchport access vlan 5 that it will also carry vlan 1so it can talk w/ the other port on same switch that is
not configured to switchport access vlan 5
I appreciate the feedback and seek to join extend my menbership. Looking forward  and thanks Mr donjohnston

Hi donjohnston,
I am a newbee and unfamiliar. I regret closing the querry as it appear we continue to have issues. I will open a new querry following on the same devices. No changes made to cat4506. The issue is on cat3550. I trust you will kindly provide your expertise.
Many thanks,
