Hi
I am trying to configure a Cisco 4506 port to allow traffic of multiple VLANs.
This port will be connected to a VMWARE ESX server.
Here is part of the output of the 'show run' command.
!
interface GigabitEthernet2/1
 description desc VMWARE trunk port
 switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
 switchport trunk allowed vlan 10,255
 switchport mode trunk
 speed 1000
!
I then connect an IBMT60 with Gbit adaptor (set to auto) to the switch port.
IP property of the T60 was statically set (including gateway, DNS) as a host on the '10' subnet, then as a host on the '255' subnet.
But I cannot ping any servers on the 10 or 255 subnet.

please let me know as the switch port is proprely configured.

Set the IBMT60 to 1000 - Auto doesn't work for a lot of devices.
