Turning a Catalyst 2960 into a semi dumb switch
Posted on 2009-02-16
I need to take a C2950 and turn it into a semi dumb switch. I say that because, I want two segments on it, but i do not want the switch to broad cast that info.
Here is the scenario.
In my lab i have a switch, it has multiple segments on it. One of my segments will be connected to my "external" (company) network. the other will be connected to devices on a private subnet. The goal is to be able to move the external segments uplink to any switch port on my corp network and have it simply act as a dumb switch.
Pointers \ check list of things i need to make sure to disable would be great. If this were a more permanent project, i would go thru the trouble of putting in the CRs have the corp switch trunked down, but this is a rapidly evolving project and dont have the time for that kind of overhead.
