According to all books read, taught and tutorial followed, configuring Vlan trunking encapsulation is as follows
2.Switch(config-if)#switchport mode trunk
3.Switch(config-if)#switch trunk encap isl
But this has always been a hichup/hinderance to experimenting with my vlan.The only problem in the three listed lines is the third (the encapsulation line is never accepted by the switch)
A'm i doing anything wrong? please help me, i am doing this on 2950 switch.
On 2950 only dot1q is supported and that is by default so you need to use any command to configure something which is the only option and that is the reason we have not provided that command.
You can simply run one command
"switchport mode trunk" and you can verify the trunking status and encapsulation status running a command "sh run int fa0/10 switchport"
*Pls rate all helpfull post
