Hi,

1) This is related to Virtual LAN (VLAN); I am still confused with it! (I need the 2nd opinion or confirmation from experts)
2) Please see the Diagram # 1
3) From Router "R1" and Switch "SW2", i created 2 virtual lans (VLAN 10 and VLAN 20); here are the configuration:
- I herewith do not present the configuration at Layer 3 (At Router "R1"); i just gave the configuration at the switches (layer 2)
- I configure the "Trunk" at the SW2 (at the port #1 which is "fa0/1")
- The Trunk Configuration is as the followings:
   *SW2>enable
   *SW2#config t
   *SW2(config)#int fa0/1
   *SW2(config-if)#switchport trunk encap dot1q
   *SW2(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
   *SW2(config-if)#exit
4) I configure the VLAN 10 at the Port#5 of SW2; the configuration is as the followings:
   * SW2(config)#int fa0/5
   * SW2(config-if)#switchport mode access
   * SW2(config-if)#switchport access VLAN 10
   * SW2(Config-if)#exit
5) I connect a "cross-over cable" from SW2 (at Port # 5 or fa0/5) to SW3 (at the port #1 or fa0/1)
6) I configure VLAN 20 at the Port#8 of SW2; the configuration is as the followings:
   * SW2(config)#int fa0/8
   * SW2(config-if)#switchport mode access
   * SW2(config-if)#switchport access VLAN 20
   * SW2(config-if)#exit
7) I connect a "cross-over cable" from SW2 (at port#8 or fa0/8) to SW4 (at the port #4 or fa0/4)
8) My Questions:
First: Per my understanding, all the PORTS at SW3 should be at VLAN 10 now; is it right? Please Confirm
Second: Per my understanding, all the PORTS at SW4 should be at VLAN 20 now; is it right?
Third: (If the answer of 2nd question is "Yes"),  It is related to SW4; is it OK if i connect "the cross-over" cable to the Port#4 at SW4 (NOT port #1 or fa0/1) to carry the VLAN 20 through all the SW4
9) Thank you

tjie
