(i am not intend to use a backbone config) my confusion is, in each switch there should be a trunk setting but those this setting, which is configure on the port should be also connected? using a cable? if so, then i am confused since, if i need to use a different cables, then it not so far from using a different segments thanks Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
