hi ive configured an 'ibgp & ebgp' network & added the following 2 switches:
1 x 2950 layer 2 cisco switch
1 x 3550 layer 3 cisco switch - using a layer 3 as not got extra 2950 currently!
all my configurations and fault-tolerance tests at this point work as i can see!!!
qns1. im currently using the default 'vlan1' setting for both 2950 & 3550 & have changed both to 'transparent mode' as dont believe vtp server/client is required due to this topology & would not need to add for eg: bgduguard enable - is this correct ?
qns2. should i be adding a 'default-gateway' back to my cambridge int fa1/0 & fa1/1, on both lan-a & lan-b' switches - (i presume i should, so that it has another way of communicating as it is not a hub so can be used) ?
qns3. should i leave the cambridge router int fa1/0 & fa1/1 as 'speed 100' or leave as 'auto', ?
qns4. should i leave the cambridge router int fa1/0 & fa1/1 as 'duplex auto' or 'duplex full' - (i presume duplex full should be added due to this 2-way communications requirement) ?
