    If I want to connect a catalyst 2900xl switch to an other switch I need to
    use a cross cable,
    or an uplink port on the other switch (if any)...
    I was wondering, if it is possible to configure a port (or multiple) as a
    uplink port?
    so that I can use a straight cable instead of a cross clable.

    thanks Andree

  2. I don't think so. The difference has to do with which pins are used for
    transmit versus receive, and it's not software-switchable.
