Accessing 2960G cisco switch via VLAN trunk
Posted on 2009-05-19
I have limited exposure to cisco switching, but have a rough understanding of what is happening,
I recently installed a 2960G cisco switch in to our new office space. We created a trunk back to our core swtich that carries all the VLAN's used.
I configured all switches to either VLAN 201 or VLAN 120. The problem is, I need to configure the IP address of the switch to be on VLAN 120 in order to connect to switch from my workstation. (as soon as trunk was installed, lost access).
I change the IP address to be on VLAN 120 but still can't access. I think I need to tell the switch to use VLAN 120 for management.
Note, the VLANS are no present on the swtich, it is getting VLAN information from core.
Can someone help me please?
