We have several servers which have both 10Base-T and 100Base-T cards in
them. The 100Base-T NICs plug into a Cisco Pro Fast Hub 100TX which in
turn plugs into a Cisco 7010 Router. Some of the Servers are also on the
same 10Base-T subnet. All of the 10Base-T hubs connect to this same 7010
QUESTION(s): We want the Servers to talk to each other at 100Mbps. How
would I ensure that this is happening. Do I need to set up static
routing tables and turn on routerd?
On the other hand, many of the Users are on other subnets and will reach
the server via the Router. Do I want them to only access the servers via
the 10Base-T subnet and if so, what would be the best way to do this?
I am hoping to replace the Cisco with a switch that ought to improve
things some. We have no sniffer here, so I'm wondering how I am going to
be able to accurately test how various config changes are effecting the
network. I'd appreciate any ideas you may have.
Thanks in advance.
