Yes of course. Trunk encapsulation has nothing to do with the port duplex-settings.

But why do u want to use that. This would significantly degrade the network performance while running the trunk links which will be carrying a huge traffic across the half-duplex port.

Hi Sarah

AFAIK the ports have to be running in full duplex mode for a trunk to form. This is why trunks cannnot be configured on 1900 switches which only have 10mbps/half duplex ports.
