I can't see why not.

how do I config sw2950 to be part of vtp so that I can assign different vlan on it?


As far as I know you would configure a trunk port on the 2950 and connect that to the trunk port on the 3750. By default, VLAN 1 should be the base VLAN on that port and any/all other VLAN's configured on that switch will be added to the trunk port.

If you hit Cisco's website and do some searches, I'm sure you'll find plenty of info.

We're here to help, not do the work for you.

If you don't know how to configure a Cisco device, then you need to hire a professional to do it for you or get some training and learn how to do it yourself.

If this is a homework assignment, we don't do those as you'll learn nothing if we do it for you.

I could definitely do the job for you but my consulting fee is $2,500 (cash up front) and I charge $250.00 an hour for my hourly rate. I bill a miniumum of two hours (over and above my consulting fee) so it would cost you minimum $3,000.00 just to get me to walk in your door.

If the job requires travel, you pay all expenses. In case you're wondering, I live in Canada.

I am looking for someone who can voluntary help, not ask for a service. that's what this forum's objective setup initially. Are you trying to sell yourself offering services?

I understand that. If you go back and reread your original post and then read my first response (reply #1) you'll see I answered your questions...........for free no less.

Then you came back and responded as follows:

No thank you for my time and effort, just another question.

You state that you're not very familiar with Cisco command line. That leads me to believe you're either doing cisco training........and if that's true, as I said, we won't do your homework for you..........or, you're actually working at a job you're not qualified to do. Thus my recommendation to hire a professional.

You need to understand, I'm here to help as are the other volunteers. But why you think that means I'm obliged to give you for free (or anybody else for that matter) something I've spent money (training) and time (gaining experience working in the field and also time spent researching) on I don't understand.

I helped you.

If you want me to do the freaking work for you now too, you're going to have to pay me............period end of story.

If you're a student taking Cisco training, you learn nothing if I do the work for you.

Finally, I could tell you how to config the switch BUT, since you're not familiar with Cisco's command line, it won't mean doodly squat to you since you've already admitted you're not familiar with the command line.

Cisco is a world by itself. You might be better off asking in a Cisco forum.

There is ^^ one of many.

Sorry but I'm not buying this. Configuring an interface on a switch is basic knowledge and if you don't know that, you probably don't even know how to get into privileged mode.

I repeat again, if this is work related hire a professional, you're not qualified or capable..............period end of story.

As for finding the info on Cisco's website.............that's something for you to do, not me. I'm not the one needing the help. Just FYI, I googled "2950 command line" and that provided two links to Cisco's website and 2950 related inforation.

The problem is, the info isn't likely to do you any good since you don't know anything about it. You're probably best off to follow guapo's link and hope somebody in the Cisco forums will configure your switch for you. I suspect you won't have much joy there though since most of them are like me, there to help people, not do the work for them.
