|I happen to be very familiar with the Baystack 5500 series. We have many 5510's and 5520's in our environment and have lately been buying 5632's and 5698's. But I digress...........|
While not absolutely necessary any more, it's always best to use a crossover cable when connecting like devices. So I highly recommend you use a crossover as your uplink cable between switches.
The only settings I can think of that you will want are to have the interface set to "Access"
If you've changed it from Access to "trunk", "untag PVID only", or "tagPVIDonly" it won't work.
I'm not sure if you're using the Java Device manager or the web browser to connect. If you're using JDM, connect to the switch and right click on the port in question and select "Edit" from the menu. Then in the window that opens up, click on the VLAN tab to check the port settings I'm talking about. You should have "1" as your PVID and under "VlanIds" the only VLAN showing should be 1. For "Type" the radio button beside "Access" should be enabled.
From the web browser (pre v6.2 SW/FW), go to:
Applications >> VLAN >> Port Configuration
Then check the port you're using. It should show the following:
PVID = 1
Tagging = Untag All
To check and ensure you have only VLAN 1 added to that port, click on:
Applications >> VLAN >> Port Information
and choose the appropriate port and click Submit.
If you are running v6.2 or higher SW/FW connect with your web browser (EDM) and after logging in click on the "Device Physical View" tab and then right click on the appropriate port and select "Edit" from the menu and then click on the VLAN tab to check those settings.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
