Hi Friend,

VTP is a cisco propritory protocol so no LAN card will work for that and VLANs are not required to be propogated to servers.

I believe your requirement is to configure a port as a trunk port so that your server can access all vlans. If yes then you need to check with LAN card vendor to provide you a card which support and understand dot1q tag.

You need a LAN card with 802.1q support over it to trunk to the switch. You will not get VTP feature on the NIC as it is proprietry to Cisco.
