I need to know when you connect a Layer 3 switch like a 3750/3650 to 2950 through GBIC/1000 Gbps port, do you configure the IP address to the link in 2950 and 3750 switches? Is it similar to a 2950 connection to a router?
You can perform both those options. If your L3 switch is doing routing, you would configure the port as you would for a router; if it's a simple
, you need to configure it as a trunk port. It depends upon the scenario you would be using, but if you can give me more details on the problem/scenario you are working on, I can guide you through the configuration.
