Hello Alphonso,

from the cat3550 you cannot rely on the Cisco proprietary negotiation protocols

so the config will be:

int gi0/5


switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport mode trunk

[switchport nonegotiate]

from the DELL side

here you find the tech specs of your switch

VLAN support for tagging and port-based as per IEEE 802.1Q

Double VLAN tagging (QinQ)

Up to 1024 VLANs supported

Dynamic VLAN with GVRP support

Voice VLAN support

You need also to define the VLANs of interest because it cannot use VTP.

How to configure:

hope to help
