    I have configured an ASA 5505 for use in a branch office. I purchased
    a 50-user base license. One ethernet port, eth0/7, is in vlan2
    (outside) and the others are in vlan1. I want to connect one of the
    inside ports to a 20-port switch just to have more ports. I do not
    want to trunk vlans. It does not work. I thought I would try to
    change the mode of one of the inside ports to trunk mode instead of
    access mode. It says with this license I can't change it to trunk

    Is there no way to do this?

    I was connecting an el cheapo Linksys switch to the ASA using a
    staraight-through cable from the uplink port to an inside port on the
    ASA. This did not work. A straight-through or a cross-over from a
    regular port on the Linksys to an inside port on the ASA works. I
    guess the uplink port on the ASA confuses the autosensing on the
    ASA. :)

    Sometimes the uplink port on a device is an "either/or".

    E.g.: You can use port x on the switch OR the uplink, but not both

    Perhaps, while connecting the uplink, the port which it is associated
    with had a device connected to it.
