Hello Mahendra,

for connections with third party switches you may need to use the interface commands

 

int gi1/0/1

switchport nonegotiate

switchport mode trunk

! sometimes you may need

 

DTP is Cisco proprietary and the first command disables it, then with switchport mode trunk you configure the Cisco side to be a trunk that is typically used for inter switch links

 

Hope to help

Dear Larosa,

 

Is Cisco catalyst compatible with Siemens scalance x208 switch for connectivity?

Hello Mahendra,

according to the Siemens datasheet

https://support.industry.siemens.com/cs/products/6gk5208-0ba10-2aa3/scalance-x208?pid=501190&mlfb=6GK5208-0BA10-2AA3&mfn=ps&lc=en-DK

 

the scalance has 8 10/100 FE ports RJ45.

You should be able to connect using a giga port RJ45.

You can eventually try to add

interface gi1/0/1

speed 100

duplex full

 

if the link does not come up when relying on auto negotiation (to be preferred try first without the speed and duplex commands)

 

Hope to help

Giuseppe
