Last Modified: 2013-05-14
I would like to know how to configure cisco router in the following scenarios:

Scenario 1:

We have layer 2 switches, configured with Vlans 10,20,30,40,50
we have windows DHCP Server, DNS Server  in Vlan 10 configured with static IP addresses, we have also some workstatyions plugged to Vlan10 that should get their IP from DHCP.
In this case , I believe I need to configure one port of the Layer2 switch as a Trunk and connect to the router port. once this done, how should I configure my router ?

Scenario 2:
the same as Scenario one, except that I need to replace Layer2 switch with Layer 3 switch.

Please post the configuration of the router for both scenarios

Thank you
