    Hi,
    What is the function of the routed port on the 3550 switch.
    1. Do you need to create a routed port to route between vlans.

    2. Do you need to connect the routed port to the router in order to route
    between vlans.

    No, you create SVIs ("interface vlan123") to route between VLANs.

    A routed port is useful if you want to IP terminate something on the
    3550 - and not get the traffic on that port mixed in with other L2
    traffic.
