I have a pair of 2960G switches with vlans I'd like shared over a circuit provided by Yipes. Yipes says in order to pass my tags unmolested I need to hand them ethertype 0x9100 instead of 0x8100. Apparently the command to set this for an interface is

dot1q tunneling ethertype

I only see it mentioned in the docs for 10000 or 12000 series hardware. Can my little 2960G switches pass 0x9100 over the trunk port? If not, what will do it?
