CDP: 3550 sending hello to 2950.

For a week I have not touched my switches, thanks to a new game which I’ve got… Playing game is a waste of time…zzzzz

Today I started practising with a MLS and a switch, switch receive cdp updates from MLS, but MLS did not receive updates from switch.

I turn on debug cdp events and debug cdp adjaceny, no outputs…. zzz

Anyway later I have found that the switch port has non-negotiate turned on and my MLS port connecting to this switch port was configured as dynamic desirable. This means switch refused MLS port’s request to negotiate a trunk… lol… great…. so i think if not a trunk then the port should be an access port.

Anyway in my MLS port i hardcode the port as a trunk, before that I type this command:
3550-2(config-if)#switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

cat3550 supports ISL as well as 802.1q. After I have set MLS port manually to trunk, MLS receives cdp updates from 2950 switch.. great…
