Hi,

Since the Cisco is in trunk mode it should be sending tagged packets, but the powerconnect is sending back untagged traffic and it doesn’t know what to do with them. Try setting the power connect to send VLAN 20 as tagged.

What happens if you make both sides trunk ports?

Re: Trunk between CAT93k and Dell 6200

Trunk ports don’t have a native VLAN. Why do you need an untagged VLAN between the switches?

Re: Trunk between CAT93k and Dell 6200

vlan 20 is not tagged its just the defaut vlan for the data lan

we do not use vlan 1

Ok, everything else looks fine from the current configuration so it should work. Is the firmware up to date?
