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

What are you using to route between the VLANs?
Don JohnstonConnect With a Mentor InstructorCommented:
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)

Hi All,

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
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.
