routed port

I am a bit confused about the intervlan routing and routed port.

Catalyst 500 (fa0/20) <-- trunk --> (fa0/10) 3560 (fa0/24) <--> (port 1) Cisco appliance

As you can see from the description above, I have a Catalyst 3560 switch and I have port fa0/24 configured as access port vlan 50. I also have an svi configure for vlan50 as fa0/24 is connected to an appliance port 1 (
- is fa0/24 a routed port?
- What does it take to make fa0/10 to be a routed port?

Check the config, if the switch is performing routing you will see the command(s)

ip routing

If you see this command your switch is configured to route traffic...
If you need post a sanatized config from your switch so we can see things more clearly...

On the 3560, there is ip routing. So to make the fa0/10 a routed port, I need to change it to an access port and assign vlan50 to it. Correct?
The fa0/20 on the Catalyst 500 has to be configured as access port with a vlan50 as well. Correct?

No, read @yelbaglf comment to set ports as routed ports...

I have:
int fa0/24
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan 50
interface vlan 50
ip address

That's not a routed port then?

No, fa0/24 is an access port, and then you have vlan 50 set up as a routed vlan interface.
