Configuring Multiple Cisco Catalyst 2950XL Switches

By fsantos ·

I have 2 switches that I want to add on to 2 existing switches already in operation on our rack. I noticed that uplink ports are not provided on the catalyst switches so as to daisy chain the additional switches.

...I figure that the 2 new switches will then need to be connected directly to the main switch....

I understand that these switches out of the box should just work as a regular switch vs. a managed switch..

Some Questions

1. How do I go about installing the additional switches for both scenarios: Regular switch or a managed switch?

2. Are there issues about switches being in server mode? transparent mode? or client mode?

3. How do I properly connect the cables? Will any switch port do or are there specific ports to use?

Hope my questions are understandable and revelant.

Thank you for your help in advance.
