VLAN Tagging

When you want traffic from multiple VLANs to be able to traverse a link that interconnects two switches, you need to configure a VLAN tagging method on the ports that supply the link. Although there are a number of tagging methods in use for different technologies, the two are known as InterSwitch Link (ISL) and 802.1q. ISL is a Cisco proprietary VLAN tagging methods, while 802.1q is a open standard. When interconnecting two Cisco switches, ISL is usually the best choice, but if you need to interconnect switches of different types (a Cisco switch and an Avaya switch, for example), then you'll need to use IETF.

This example shows how to configure a port for trunk mode:

Switch(config-if)# switchport mode trunk

This example shows how to configure a port for as an 802.1Q tunnel port TAG:

Switch(config-if)# switchport mode dot1q-tunnel

Hope that helps
