RE: Problems connectivity GE on Foundry BigIron to Cisco 2950T

You are using a crossover cable right?  If that's all set, you
do need to have neg-off on the Foundry and "no nego auto" on the
Cisco.  I haven't used the rj-45 gbics in the Foundry equipment
before, not sure if that could be an issue.  I would go with
the hard set 1000-full on both sides.

I'm having a right mare trying to get a Foundry BigIron to 
connect up to a cisco 2950T, via Gigabit copper.

The Foundry BigIron is using a cisco RJ45/copper GBIC that 
was pulled from a live cisco 6500, where it was working
fine. The cisco 2950T has two fixed 10/100/1000 RJ45 ports.

The cables between the equipment have been tested and are fine.

The Foundry has three different types of the gigabit negiation modes:

   auto-gig        Autonegotiation
   neg-full-auto   Autonegotiation first, if failed try 
   neg-off         Non-autonegotiation

I've tried all three, complete with all the other 
possibilities with the cisco 2950T (which has fixed full
duplex operation, but can be set to 'speed auto' or
'speed 1000').

None of these combinations bring up the link. The cisco 2950 
never gets a link light. The Foundry gets a link light
regardless when it's mode is set to 'gig-default neg-off'.

I'm at a bit of a loss to explain this. Does anyone know of any 
configuration issues that can explain this, or is it time to start 
swapping out hardware components?
