I have a new 2960S poe switch and need to connect it to my lan for voip, it will be the first voip switch. I will be connecting it to my catalyst 4507R. I need help in how to configure it from the beginning. I will connect the new switch to the 4507 with a regular ethernet cable - what do I do after that? I heard I need to trunk the ports, any 2 ports? How do I trunk them? How do I create the voip vlan? All ports on the switch will be for voip. I also need to put a dhcp server on the new switch (vlan?) so the IP phones can receive an address, how? What do I use as the default gateway?
Once I install the switch how do I log into it to set it up via telnet?
