hi every body!

Can any body tell me two fast ethernet ports, set to half duplex, be used for trunk?

thanks alot !

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.
