  • Cisco Switch Connections

    I have 7 switches 2960 and 2960g on the network right now, all catering to different services on the network. What i am trying to do now is add one more switch and
    connect these other 7 switches to the one switch 2960g so ill be able to put a work station and SSH to my other switches through the one switch and if needed make changes. How do i go about the setup? I'm new to networking.
    Thank you in advance.

    How do you remote manage any of the existing switches now?

    If you aren't doing that now and are just starting out, you may want to get a network consultant in to go thru your network with you. He/she can show you how to add a switch so the network doesn't go down, and how to remote manage all the devices thru telnet/ssh from any device, or how to lock down said access so only specific PCs can make a remote connection.

    There are several issues to be considered in all of this, and it sounds like you may be in need of some hands-on training before you try tackling this much on your own.
