Creating Cisco VLANs

Hi All,

  I have my cisco 4500 core switch which has all my vlans created, I have 7 Vlans created with the IP of 192.168.2. ,,192.168.3 etc. lets say I have my first site with Vlan 192.168.2.x and my second site with vlan 192.168.3.x. now I have created another vlan in my core switch with Ip range of 135.x.x.x. in my first site I need 5 ports in my 2950 switch to be part of this vlan and in my second site I need 5 ports in 2950 switch to be part of this vlan as well, I have made the configuration in my 2950 switches in  these two sites ( switch port access vlan ( the new one 135.x.x.x) but still hosts which are members in the new vlan in site 1 can not communicate with the hots in the new vlan in site 2. can any one advise. from my core switch I can not ping these IPs also

Thanks

What are you using to route between the VLANs?

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
You need trunks between the Core and the 2950's.

Core port going to 2950s:
switchport trunk encap dot1q
switchport trunk mode on
 
2950 port going to Core:
switchport trunk mode on

Do these 2950s have trunk connections to the 4500?  if not you'll only be able to share 1 vlan to them (well, technically it's 2 - your 192.168.x and the native vlan)

Please post the config of the 4500 and the 2950. Also indicate what port the host is connected to and what ports connect the switches together.
