I suddenly must configure two cisco switch 2960s within the same network, basically the idea is that through two cables they will physically be connected but logically, in each switch, two ports must look like one and be aggregated.

What should I do? I do not know much about Cisco and Switches.

Any recommendation?

I guess I must create a port channel interface into each switch and after that i should add the interfaces (2 from each Switch) to the port channel? – arrrrgv Nov 16 '11 at 5:59
People are going to be wary of offering you answers as long as you have a low accept rate. That's because this community thrives on having good answers to good questions. If someone has given you a good answer in the past, but you did not mark it as such, the community is weakened. Now, if you truly did not get good answers to your previous questions, then edit your previous questions and say that you're still looking for a satisfactory answer. – Bart De Vos Nov 16 '11 at 8:33

Please Please Please read through Cisco documentation. It's freely accessible and easy to follow:

Select the switch with your corresponding IOS version.

But to point you in the right direction you will have to add the ports to a channel-group.
