Cisco 2950 and Dell Powerconnect 5224

I am trying to Cascade a cisco 2950 and dell powerconnect 5224. I am connecting port 32 on the 2950 and port 24 (gigport) on the dell. Any idea on how I can get the cascading to work? This is what I have on the Dell and the cisco.

Dell Powerconnect 5224:

interface ethernet 1/24

switchport allowed vlan add 1 untagged

switchport native vlan 1

switchport mode trunk

switchport allowed vlan add 1,10 tagged

Cisco 2950:

interface FastEthernet0/32

switchport access vlan 10

switchport mode trunk

Dell documentationon casdcading between powerconnect and catalyst 4000 talks about setting up GVRP on both the dell and cisco switches. However, 2950 doesn't have GVRP.

Any ideas, tips. Thanks.

Are you using a crossover cable?

Try this instead:

Dell:

interface ethernet 1/24

switchport allowed vlan add 1 untagged

switchport native vlan 1

switchport mode trunk

switchport allowed vlan add 10 tagged

Cisco 2950:

interface FastEthernet0/32

switchport mode trunk

switchport trunk allow vlan 1,10

switchport nonegotiate

You don't need "switchport access vlan 10" on the Cisco because it's not in access mode, it's in trunk mode. And on the Dell you don't want vlan 1 to be tagged and untagged.

Good luck.
